Therapy Prep Classes will prepare handlers and dogs* for the Pet Partners therapy dog evaluation. The series of three classes will cover all the required obedience and therapy exercises that evaluators will use to determine a dog’s suitability for registration as a Pet Partners therapy dog.

It is recommended that participants have completed an obedience class or have already taken an AKC® Canine Good Citizen course, but not required.
