The Animal Assisted Intervention and the Advanced classes have been merged because there is so much overlap.
All the skills that would normally be considered only for the Animal Assisted Interventions class should be in everyone’s toolbox as they take their dogs out into public for walks, recreation, pick up kids at the school bus, vacations, sports, etc.
Every interaction your dog has with a stranger is a moment to affect that person’s life.
If you have wanted to do the Advanced class to hone skills or prepare for the CGC – this is the class.
If you want to volunteer with your dog to do Animal Assisted Interventions – this is the class for you.
If you are already working your dog on Animal Assisted Intervention visits, this class will help you develop more broad handling and supporting skills.
If you are training your dog to do service work for you, this class will give you the tools so you can work your dog appropriately in public.
If you have questions, or are not sure if your dog is ready for this class, please email me.
