    DefaultQuestion re: Therapy Dogs

    A friend with a very well behaved and trained lab asked if I knew how to get certified to be a therapy dog. Can anyone tell me where she should go - or what type of agency to contact. And what's involved in getting certified would be a great help also.
    Thanks.

    They will help find local evaluators. I found mine at my local kennel club. The test itself is an extended version of the AKC CGC test.

    That's great!

    I took a theapy certification class with Simon. Sadly, we had a vacation planned the week of the final test, so we didn't get to take it.

    Honestly, though, I'm not thinking he would have passed. Our evaluator/teacher is VERY strict. The test is much harder than it seems on outward appearances!

    Good luck to your friend. It's a very noble pursuit!
