This class will teach your dog everything he/she needs to earn to be a therapy dog.

Once you pass the evaluation course with us, you must complete 10 hours of time visiting public area’s such as nursing homes etc.

This class has four sessions.
Class meets: July 7,14,21,28 from 10:00 AM – 10:50 AM
All classes are held on Saturdays at our East Smithfield location.
