The Therapy Ambassadog Class is for owners that wish to be able to work with their dog as a Therapy Dog Team and visit nursing homes, schools, libraries, etc...  Your dog must be at least 1 year old, have good manners, walk nicely on harness, love meeting new people, and must also have a calm temperament around other dogs.  If you would like to have your dog evaluated before signing up, please contact Claire to set up a time to meet. 


This is Session 1 of the 3 sessions required to complete the Therapy Ambassadog Certification. Each session will be 4 weeks of class on Thursdays at 7:30 pm. There will be a one week break in between each session.  This is a commitment to attend 12 class sessions. No makeup classes will be offered, so each class must be attended.  We will be covering ADA laws and each week will be introducing the dogs to new things that they will be experiencing out in the world on their visits.
