Being at the other end of the leash when your dog works it's magic is life changing. Therapy dogs can just know when someone needs a visit or when a person needs encouragement. Dogs come into rooms with big smiles, tails a wagging and sharing unconditional love. Dog training becomes the core of these dogs as they visit with confidence.
Yes, the love is unconditional to everyone, no matter their background, rich or poor, disabled or not, and regardless of race. They are genuine, and authentic visitors that light up everywhere they go.
They give courage to the one struggling to learn how to read, to the one learning to walk again, to the one remembering the good old days.
And YOU, YOU are the one on the other end of the leash sharing that magic, being a blessing to your community.
Therapy dogs do require a higher level of dog training. It is important they are good around everyone, listen the asked to do something, leave whatever is on the floor. We train them so if someone talks differently or walks differently they don't react negatively to them but with our expected happy wags and smiles.
I run the K9to5 Therapy Dog Agency in which you would be enrolled in.
Please call me 719-238-8118, I am here to help.
"What a great, experienced, kind dog training experience. I highly recommend Christine Kelly and her team. We started for basic obedience and have continued through her therapy program. I have seen my dog and my understanding of handling grow so much."
