I live in Dallas, Tx. My lab, Jazz, is 5 months old and has the most wonderful tempermant...very calm and best friends with every dog/person she meets. I am interested in getting Jazz and myself involved in some volunteer work like visiting people in the hospital. I've been blessed with such a sweet girl and want to share her with people that could use a little break from the daily hospital routine and let them play with, pet, or see a dog. Jazz is still a puppy and we probably need to wait a little while until the mouthing stage is over with (we are working very hard on getting this habit nipped...she gets corrected every time she does it), but was wondering where to get started. Does the dog need special training or cerification? I plan to contact the nearby hospital but was wondering if anyone has had experience with this? Thanks!!
