To belong to Therapy Dogs International (TDI®) all dogs must be tested and evaluated by a Certified TDI Evaluator. A dog must be a minimum of one (1) year of age and have a sound temperament. Each dog must pass a TDI temperament evaluation for suitability to become a Therapy Dog. The test will also include the evaluation of the dog’s behavior around people with the use of some type of service equipment (wheelchairs, crutches, etc.).
Please review the TDI website for more information about the Therapy Dog Program.
All dogs tested will have to pass the TDI evaluation per TDI rules. NOT EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE.
We also have a Therapy Dog Testing Workshop setup for 1/17/16. Please visit website or facebook page for more details.
The cost of testing is $8. Pre-registration is required, limited spacing is available. Please contact Paula Paula Myer Thomason Via email Riverrundog@aol.com to sign up. Facebook registration will NOT BE excepted.Type your paragraph here.
