Due to the nature of the therapy dog work we do our therapy dogs are more strictly assessed and require more time training than many other therapy dog organisations. This is due to the structured nature and intensity of the service we provide.
Your dog can join Pawsitive Squad CIC as a therapy dog in training if:
You can apply to become a therapy dog in training before your organisation is fully on board. It is not uncommon for organisations to be cautious about bringing a therapy dog in. That is why we are happy to provide all the training & assessments first to enable to organisation to make a fully informed decision after a period of training & assessment. If you meet the criteria then we would love to welcome you into our therapy dog program. Please complete the application form below and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application process is very simple. Once we recieve your application form we will send you a confirmation email which either accepts your dog onto the process and gives you details of upcoming training sessions or we will tell you why we have been unable to accept your dog onto the program. There is no cost in applying to join the Pawsitive Squad therapy dog program but the actual training and assessments do come at a cost which differs depending on whether you're not for profit or a for profit organisation.
