Therapy Dogs for Visits to Facilities
Why Alliance of Therapy Dogs is Your Best Choice
Our certified therapy dogs undergo extensive testing to make sure that they have good manners and react positively to being touched by strangers. After passing the test, ATD requires that the dog and the handler complete three successful supervised visits in a facility, school, or other public venue where they must successfully interact with strangers in therapy-like settings. Two of these visits are in a medically related facility.
Clean, Groomed & Healthy
Our therapy dogs are cleaned and groomed before visits, up-to-date on rabies vaccines and other inoculations recommended by their personal veterinarians, and show proof of a negative fecal exam every 12 months.
Covered by Our Insurance
ATD provides insurance for its volunteer teams in the unlikely event someone is injured as a result of interacting with the therapy dog.
