So excited for Sprinkles! He completed basic greyhound obedience this summer and will be starting the Canine Good Citizen class in 2 weeks. If he does well, we'd like to take the next step and become a Therapy Dog International dog.

 

Wish us luck!

Congratulations! No graduation pictures? :angry:;)

 

That's something I've always wanted to do. Couldn't do it with Seymour because he was just a little too skittish around machines. Good luck with the classes!

Congratulations! And interesting. We don't need, in Canada, to have any official obedience or good citizen training to be a therapy dog. In fact, Summer and I are going at the end of October for our exam and, if she passes, we go on 3 monitored visits and then we are on our own! She will have to behave properly on the "exam", be gentle, not pee, not freak out at wheelchairs or a dropped steel bowl, etc. Not too hard.

Sprinkles, good luck to you!!!

 

We're in Canada too and Master did not need a CGC to become a pet therapy dog last weekend, just strict testing.

One of my greys is a TDI dog and he loves it! We did the Canine Good Citizen test too although we did not take the class because I pretty much knew what was expected at the test. When Sprinkles passes the TDI they should send you a list of places that have requested therapy dog visits. When you visit the nursing homes watch Sprinkles. I could tell which homes mine boy enjoyed and those are the ones we visit regularly.

Congratulations! It is one more thing you can do WITH Sprinkles!

I hope to do some work like that with my Fritz once I finish school in May and will have more time. He loves doing meet and greets and nothing phases him at all.

 

Good luck!

WTG Sprinkles! My Cappy is a certified with TDI and we have a gryt time volunteering at the rehab center, assisted living and nursing home. He wears silly hats from Bow Wow Bonnets when he visits and that surely brings a lot of smiles and giggles to residents and staff.

Best of luck to you in this most worth while volunteer project.
