What Makes A Good Therapy Dog



There is no perfect breed or mix of breeds for therapy work. The dog must be more than one year of age, is healthy, well-mannered, and not dog aggressive and enjoys human contact, he or she will likely make a good therapy dog.
 
Knowing tricks is not a requirement, but many members have taught their dogs special tricks such as “shake hands” or “speak” as a conversation starter. Obedience routines are helpful and serve the same purpose, while conformation dogs often excel at standing still for petting.
 
Each dog/handler team is unique and offers wonderful opportunities for therapeutic contact. Cats, wolves or wolf hybrids, and other species of animals will not be considered for membership in Therapy Dogs Incorporated. Only canines can be registered.
