WHAT IS A THERAPY DOG?

A therapy dog begins as a loved and well-cared for pet that finds it has a calling in life to help others. These special canines are trained to give affection and comfort to anyone in need. Our screening involves direct observation of the dogs in a 12-weeks class, passing the CGC test at week 6, and testing on therapy specific behaviors. Each dog is friendly, confident, patient and gentle.

They are comfortable in a variety of settings and with a variety of people. Therapy dogs come in all sizes and breeds. Some of the facilities visited by therapy dogs include nursing homes, hospices, hospitals, elementary schools, grief camps, cancer camps, MDA Camps, and many more locations.

They produce smiles, warm hearts and lots of love wherever they visit people! “Angels with Paws” provide fur therapy at its best!
