Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
All dogs must pass a test before they can be certified as therapy dogs, and basic obedience is among the required skills. I have added some photos of my dog Cowboy and some other Therapy dogs below, not all dogs will be as well trained as Cowboy, but the main requirement is a calm dog with basic obedience skills. A therapy dog is often presented with physically or mentally handicapped patients who might frighten a dog that hasn't been exposed to a variety of situations.
Some dogs may be able to handle the elderly, but not children, other dogs may be fine with both. I also remember being told never go over an hour, no matter how well a dog is trained any dog might start to get stressed, learn to read your dogs body language, and remove your dog if you see a change in behavior.


Being an evaluator gives him the insight to set up a training program specifically tailored to the needs of Canine Therapy Corps and their patients. If you have a dog with these qualities, you also need to teach your dog basic obedience commands.
These dogs are owned by volunteers who generously donate their time and their dog’s time to help others. Get 3 FREE Daycare Days for your dog by referring a friend who signs their dog up for On or Off-Leash Obedience Training. Therapy dogs must have absolutely rock solid temperaments and very strong obedience training.

While we cannot guarantee that your dog will pass the test, this program is the best place to start.
