This works very well if the place you visit has plenty of room. Sage and the people love it and I don't have to pick her up 45 or more times:)

Sage is my certified therapy dog but Wynn is the one I trust to let me "know"  when some of the people I work with are having mental health issues...he picks up on this right away. Corgis are the best for being great Therapy Dogs:)

LAYLA and I visit health care facilities, along with elementary schools. She patiently "listens" to and supports students with literacy challenges. 

Also, she's my Psychiatric Service Dog. I'm Bipolar and trained her (by role-playing) to alert me when I'm "going over the edge". FYI, I've documentation from my Therapist and a leading Vet School Animal Behaviorist.

Hi Sage,

 

Being a therapy dog has been wonderful for my self esteem.  My mom had initial doubts about it because I'm so hyper and can't sit still even if I'm an old girl (11 yrs old).  But when I'm visiting, I now what to do and how to behave.  Glad you are enjoying it.

Hello,

 

My name is Sadie and I have been a therapy dog for 4 years and I really enjoy it.  We visit the library, hospice patients and St. Mary's.  Being a therapy dog has really changed my life.  I now have a purpose and a mission!!!

Congrats! to all of you!!  :)  My blue merle cardi girl Crystal is the one who is a therapy dog, and she's a therapy dog through our local therapy pet organization, Furry Friends Pet Assisted Therapy Services, who only visits in the SF Bay Area. If I need to I can get her registered through TD Inc., but so far haven't needed it as we're so busy! My cat Mokey also visits with her, and they both are actively involved in reading programs at two different libraries as well. People are often amazed to see the cat - then confused as to what kind of dog Crystal is! I love it, and have been doing it since 2004 with my (mostly retired) older therapy cat, Muppet....

Sage and I are one test away from having her become a therapy dog. We have passed 2 and need a third which we can hopefully do this month. Then we will be part of Therapy Dog Inc. and Puppy Luv Therapy Dog groups. Finally after all these classes and driving we will have met one of our 2 goals!

Hi everyone!  My youngest Corgi "Jake" is a registered Therapy dog through the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog Program in London, Ontario Canada.  We visit a local nursing home every Wednesday morning and a local detention centre for boys age 12-17 every other Saturday.  We also visit the University of Western Ontario at exam time to de-stress the students.  We also take part in many community events to promote and bring public awareness to our program.  I hope to have my 5 yr. old tri girl "Sally" tested in the fall.  She would make an excellent Therapy dog for children.

Hi everyone...we are still a ways from being a therapy dog but Sage and I are working on obediance rally and hope to go on to therapy corgi. Due to the distance of driving it will take a bit but I have already taoked with the AKC club nearest us and they do offer this...I am so happy!
