such a program. Canine Comfort, LLC can provide everything from
complete program development to assistance only in particular areas, such
as comprehensive volunteer training (handler and dog), dog and handler
assessments, temperament testing, and developing policies and procedures.
Therapy dog programs involve more than a nice person bringing a nice dog
into a facility to visit. A skilled therapy dog volunteer should be able to
recognize stress in their dog, understand calming and displacement signals,
and have a well-developed, loving relationship with their dog. A true
therapy dog should be registered with a national therapy dog organization
and be held to high health and temperament standards. Initial and ongoing
assessments are crucial to a safe, effective program. Please visit the What
Are Therapy Dogs? page for more information.
Molly Johnson, Owner and Consultant, can tailor a program that will suit
your organization’s needs and those of the people you serve. For more
