Paws From The Heart Pet Therapy Certification
Dogs must be able to do therapy work without the use of an aversive collar. All teams need to go through two continuing education units and re-certification annually. New teams are
required to have 10 hours of therapy work with a senior handler before going solo. Each teams needs to carry out a minimum of two therapy visits per month at a venue of their choice. Teams also need to participate in group events when the opportunity arises. Dogs
who show signs of behavior issues post-certification will be dismissed. Teams who do not meet these requirements will be asked to leave.
