Interested in Pet Therapy? This class is designed to help you and your dog prepare to take the Reading With Rover therapy test. We will cover all aspects of the test, from the initial greeting to common trouble spots like passing a neutral dog or calmly greeting a crowd. Along the way, you will get specific coaching for you and your dog on how to address any issues that might be causing you difficulty in passing the test. We’ll go over some tips and tricks that will not only make passing the test easier, but will be helpful to you once you begin making therapy visits with your dog.
You will get a chance to practice mock therapy situations and improve your skills together as a team. This class is for dogs that have a solid foundation in basic obedience (sit, down, stay/wait, leash skills).
**This class is PER HANDLER. If more than one handler wants to test on the same dog, each handler must register separately for the class. Reading with Rover requires each handler to have gone through a Therapy Prep class or lesson**
All dogs must be current on their vaccines and have had a recent clear fecal exam.
NOTE: Aggressive dogs are not permitted in Flying Ace Puppy School group training classes. We are happy to refer you to local trainers who specialize in dogs with aggression issues.
