Therapy Dog Training Program
Central Florida K-9 is thrilled that the AKC has reviewed our Therapy Dog Training Program and has authorized us to train dogs to receive the AKC’s “Therapy Dog Title”. A Therapy Dog is a trained dog that can enter schools and medical facilities to offer comfort and emotional support. Currently, Central Florida K-9 provides Therapy Dogs in training at Advance Learning Academy in Maitland where the children read to the dogs in their “Pawsitive Tales” program. This is a program whereby children with special learning disabilities often do much better at reading to dogs versus other children or adults when reading out loud.
Central Florida K-9 is actively looking for new Therapy Dog Teams as we have more demand from nursing homes, schools, and Alzheimer facilities than we have Therapy Dog Teams. If you are interested in learning more about the Therapy Dog Training Program, please call Tracy at 407-926-8100. We are eager to train more teams to meet the demand for Therapy Dog Teams here in Central Florida!
