Adopting A Therapy Animal

Choosing a dog bred specifically for therapy work can truly make a remarkable difference. While any dog can potentially become a therapy dog and bring immense value to their community, certain dogs possess a unique ability to form deep connections with individuals, offering an empathetic presence and intuitively knowing who needs their love the most. Many pets would find it stressful, anxious, and uncomfortable to be constantly surrounded by unfamiliar faces. At our facility, our therapy dogs are carefully bred from our most highly trained and certified dogs, ensuring they inherit the qualities necessary for this special work. They undergo comprehensive training that goes beyond basic commands, encompassing essential skills such as potty training, crate training, proper leash manners, and bite inhibition. Moreover, they are accustomed to daily exposure to various sounds and environments, preparing them to interact confidently with the public. Additionally, our therapy dogs are fully vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, and will undergo a scheduled and paid spay/neuter procedure at the appropriate age to prevent issues like dysplasia and stunted growth. To support your success in caring for a facility therapy dog, we provide five days of training at your location, for you and selected staff members, equipping you with the knowledge and expertise needed for their proper care. 

Please email us if your organization is looking for a therapy animal to live on site at the facility. Some of our past puppies/kittens work at schools, libraries, therapy clinics, police stations, and large corporations as facility therapy pets.

When considering getting a dog for therapy work, there are pros and cons to both purchasing a dog from a reputable breeder and adopting a rescue dog. While it ultimately depends on your specific needs and preferences, here are some reasons why someone might choose to buy a dog specifically bred for therapy work:

A couple other unique reasons to choose a puppy bred for the purpose is that there are contracts in place ensuring your dog can always be returned to us, should any issue arise resulting in the facility or individual being unable to care for the animal. This gives peace of mind to our owners that their therapy dog will always be in loving hands, no matter what.

However, it's important to note that rescue dogs can also make excellent therapy dogs. We can also choose a rescue dog for you, evaluate the temperament and behavior of their dogs, train it as necessary, and certify and register that animal for you if you prefer, making it possible to find a suitable candidate for therapy work. Adoption allows you to give a loving home to a dog in need and can be a rewarding experience.

Ultimately, whether you choose to buy a puppy from us, or get paired with a rescue dog, we are happy to help you find a therapy animal to begin your journey. We can also help match you with cats, bunnies, and other animals that may be a good fit for therapy work.
