I'm researching different organizations for Therapy Dogs, training and such. So far, I've come across Therapy Dogs Inc and Therapy Dogs International. Anyone out there have experience with volunteering with their pups? I'm not quite sure where to start.
I'm planning on getting Amber's Canine Good Citizen certificate as soon as I can get her to understand the 'heel' command and I can teach her to not jump up on people for hugs and kisses. Not sure how tough that will be! Every time she meets someone new and jumps up on them, I'll give her a 'down' command and the person will always say "That's OK!" and give her lots of love anyway.
I just can't imagine not sharing her with people who could use a little more love and doggie cuddles.
