Goals

 

Angie’s Therapy Dog Class understands that therapy dogs are of great significance. While our training program is taken very seriously, you can also expect to have a great time with your dog and our staff!  It is important for you to understand the goals and opportunities of our organization as outlined below:  

 

  • Provide all necessary equipment and material for each class

  • Facilitate a visit allowing your team to bring to life the skills learned from each class

  • Invite all active therapy dog teams who have completed ATDC’s program to give back to the community by becoming an ATDC volunteer or guest speaker

  • Deliver the proper education method to allow teams to publicly speak at related therapy dog events

  • Offer an isolated handlers class focusing specifically on the responsibilities of the handler

  • Educate the dog and handler on the cognitive and behavioral skills necessary for the team to become comfortable around medical equipment and unfamiliar setting
