Training standards for Service Dogs and Therapy Dogs can vary dramatically depending on the geographic location and the training program that the dog and Handler uses. Unfortunately it is both easy and legal to purchase an official looking ID tag and vest online and try to pass off any dog as a Service Dog or Therapy Dog.
Our Therapy Dog training program is the most well-rounded and extensive Therapy Dog training program we have found. We use the same rigorous training standards applied to our Service Dogs, including social skills, obedience, task training and additional specific training tailored to our Therapy Dog’s very public work. Our training program meets or exceeds all major Therapy Dog Training Programs in Ontario.
This exceptional level of training provides our community partners, businesses and Sponsoring and Membership organizations peace of mind and assurance that their investment is directed to a quality program.
Our Teams are backed by our own liability insurance, a large selection of Certified Trainers, and an extensive support team through our K9 Headquarters in Pembroke, ON. Our Level 2 and Level 3 Handlers are certified in canine First Aid and have passed Ontario’s Vulnerable Sector Background Checks.
