This is my dog Julie. She is almost three and was just awarded her AKC Therapy Dog Title. This title is awarded after 50 therapy dog visits, which we reached earlier this year. She has been a therapy dog for over a year now with The Animal Rescue Foundation Pet Hug Pack and East Bay Humane Society PALS Program.
To become a Therapy Dog, Julie first had to pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen Test and then was evaluated by the two groups she participates with. We visit a therapeutic nursery school, hospice and hospital patients and work with young readers at a local library. She loves doing this and so do I!
