Therapy Dogs don’t just help people feel better, they help people get better! Therapy dogs come in all shapes and sizes. They leverage the human-animal bond to create magic everywhere they go with their handler. And, every time you and your Certified Therapy Dog go into action, your bond with each other becomes even greater and you share your LOVE.
Urban Pooch is excited to offer Therapy dog training as part of our Urban Pooch LEVELS program (Level 5). Our preparation and extensive evaluation can help you and your pooch achieve the goal of becoming a Certified Therapy Dog.
We have aliened our program-testing model after Canine Therapy Corps of Chicago (CTC). CTC has some of the best programs for your dog to serve the community in a variety of important programs such as visiting hospitals, nursing homes, and school programs. Once your dog has gone through our program they will be well prepared for the testing performed at CTC.
Canine Therapy Corps, Inc. empowers and motivates individuals to improve their physical and psychological health and well being by harnessing the human-animal bond; provides goal-directed, interactive animal-assisted therapy services free of charge using volunteers and certified therapy dogs.
