Council on Aging Care's Guide on Pets for Seniors
you're ready to be tested, let me know and I can conduct the test at
Mary (Kirby), Garry (Max), Dana (Ellie), Kathy, & Valerie in back

It is not a requirement for a dog
to have specific training prior to taking the initial test to become
a registered therapy dog. DogJazz or Valerie Tillery is
not affiliated with Alliance of Therapy Dogs or TDInc., yet supports their registration program.
There are four other registering organizations approved by AKC.
This group is headquartered in Wyoming, yet has volunteers throughout the
USA. They provide registration, support, and insurance to their
members involved in volunteer visits with their animals.
