Therapy dogs are friendly pets that, together with their friendly human handlers, bring comfort and happiness to others. Therapy dogs are NOT service dogs.
Prior to applying for provisional membership with Capital Therapy Dogs, your dog should be at least one year old and been your dog for no fewer than six months.
Obedience skills and a friendly temperament are important success factors. Obedience and therapy dog training classes are beneficial for both you and your dog.
There are several organizations that register handlers and animals other than dogs as therapy teams. Search online or email us for suggestions.
We are an all-volunteer non-profit. Check out our Playbook and other material on the More Info page.
