Our Position on COVID-19
While we recognize the importance of safety pertaining to COVID-19, we also know chances are high that a pup will develop irreversible issues if it isn't exposed to all the things it may encounter in its lifetime, ideally, by the time it's 14 weeks old. Additionally, troubling behaviors, not only in puppies but in older dogs as well, should be addressed before they become concerning habits, and later, serious problems. Waiting until the COVID-19 pandemic has been resolved may very well be too late to help in these situations. For reasons like these, we are currently open for business, and adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Therapy Dog Certification (aka Pet Partners Evaluation)
One requirement to becoming a Pet Partners Registered Therapy Team includes passing a Pet Partners Evaluation Test. This is not the same as a Therapy Dog Assessment, during which a dog's temperament and personality are assessed. By contrast, a Pet Partners Evaluation Test is comprised of a series of specific exercises to help evaluate how you and your dog work together as a team to ensure that you and your dog can perform the skills required for Therapy Dog work.

Note that at the Evaluation Test, you will also be asked to present your Certificate of Completion of a Pet Partners Therapy Handler Workshop.

Evaluation Tests are held at 321 Iron Point Rd., Folsom, CA 95630. Complete the form below to register.
