Therapy Dog and Handler Team Placement
Once you successfully achieved the three AKC Good Citizen++ levels and attend the five (5) required supervised group visits, you will receive your official certificate and be credentialed as a Certified Therapy Dog Team!
We will introduce you to the great many facilities that we are affiliated with throughout Palm Beach and Broward Counties. Visitation opportunities are continually expanding and, upon certification, you will continuously receive emails with existing visitation opportunities. You will also be free to make your own appointments. We will help you whenever and wherever you may need assistance. Please know that the CTD provided liability and accident insurance covers only CTD sanctioned and preauthorized visits that are open to the entire group. No unsanctioned, private or commercial use of the dog is covered. [The lawyers are making us add: Other restrictions, exclusions and limitations apply.]
We are constantly expanding our network of facilities that see the enormous value and contributions that a Certified Therapy Dog, Inc. dog can make to their patients, residents, students, etc. If there is not a listed facility near you; or if you would like to visit a specific location, we will reach out on your behalf and, if allowed, make needed arrangements for your visits. Once again, opportunities are available at elementary and high schools, library reading programs, adult and children’s hospitals, the courthouses, airports, rehab and assisted living facilities, hospice, the VA and more.
