A therapy dog is much more than just a pet. He must possess a calm temperament and be ready to engage with all people. He also must be able to maintain composure around other animals and be ready to listen to his handler at all times. Specialized training outside of basic obedience is required as well as extensive testing for both handler and dog. Additionally, annual recertification is required for the dog/handler team through an accrediting therapy dog agency. Ongoing preparations prior to each visit include remaining current on vaccinations, heartworm/flea preventive, and grooming within 24 hours prior to each visit.
