Therapy Dog Assessment
This one hour assessment is to evaluate a dog's personality and to see if they are a good candidate to begin training for therapy work.
We split the one hour assessment with the first half evaluating the dog and handler's current skill level with environmental distractions. The second half we test the same skill level in the presence of one of the trainer's demo dogs.
Please contact us for scheduling options.
