Who and what is an intensive for?

In the counselling, teaching, medical and social work fields there is a great opportunity to connect with children utilizing a therapy dog in a classroom and the interview/treatment process. This class will introduce you to the ways a therapy dog can benefit your organization taking into consideration your client base, environment and regulations for meeting acceptable industry standards.

The Therapy Dog Program is four levels and guides you through the basics of positive reinforcement clicker training, basic obedience, socialization skills to reading your dog's body language, understanding your relationship with your dog and how your dog will work effectively in your desired field. Level One is an introduction class that gets you and your dog ready to start working. The focus is on education, obedience skills involving distractions that occur in working environments and building your relationship with your working dog partner.
