Sharing our pets to enhance well-
Pet Assisted Therapy Foundational Training is integrated into private training and coaching at Dog Talk Training and Wellness. Visit or call 603-
We encourage you to choose trainers/coaches who are aware of the needs of becoming a successful pet therapy team. Basic socialization and manners and gradual desensitization to sights, sounds and smells helps to grow happy, healthy and confident dogs. The tools and skills you learn as a dog parent/partner can easily be integrated into daily living and learning with dogs.
If you need additional mentoring to increase confidence or practice before a team evaluation, call o set up a coaching session. As a Licensed Team Evaluator, I do NOT evaluate teams I have coached. We have several qualified Licensed Evaluators (scribes) at TE events.
Professionally, our passion is sharing our pets to enhance well-
Pets considered for a therapy program must enjoy interactions with people and be safely manageable in stressful situations. Owners/handlers will be engaging with staff, patients, family members, parents, and oftentimes, disenchanted people who don’t get “why a pet is in the facility”. Learning to carefully defuse stressful situations is a skill that bodes well if you are interested in pet assisted therapy. Dogs rely on us to guide them by calming the chaos, redirecting and managing interactions.
