Participants will experience the full TDV test in the first hour of the clinic (with blow-by-blow description of what we’re looking for, what we fail for, and why we do each part of the test). The second part will involve advice and hands-on training related to therapy dog work and any common issues identified in the group during the test portion.

Minimum Requirements

  • Dogs over the age of 6 months (younger dogs taken on instructor approval).
  • One dog per handler and one handler permitted to work with the dog in class.
  • Handlers must be 12 or older and able to control the dog (children must be 14 to be certified).
  • If you would like to know the requirements for certification (not the class, but the therapy dog certification) before registering for a class, please click here. For example, we cannot accept dogs on raw meat diets, less than a year of age, or canine hybrid crosses.
