Ragnar’s First Therapy Class

The first week of therapy dog class for Ragnar went great. Three of his classmates from the Canine Good Citizen class are in this class, along with four other friendly dogs. Week 1 was an introduction to what the expectations and requirements are for getting certified as a therapy dog, plus some review of what we covered in the CGC class. The therapy dog certification test is actually about 80% the same as the CGC test, so Ragnar already has a great foundation for his upcoming test. We found out we’ll be doing some field trips in this class, such as visiting a nursing home or some other facility where therapy dogs can gain some hands-on experience. Ragnar will definitely have a great time with that! Stay tuned to hear about next week’s class.
