I am wanting to be able to take Bodzin to work and let him be a therapy dog for my students eventually. I understand that he has to pass the good citizen test and from there I am somewhat confused.
Is the Delta society the best route to certify him for therapy?
Can I take him into public places as part of his training... because if I can't, how is he ever going to get used to the indoor settings at schools and hospitals?
Anyone done this or have a pup that is a therapy dog?

UBET :wink: http://www.tdi-dog.org/ is another resource. I am training Abby for Therapy/Service work. My wife is an OTR and wants to take her to work for therapy. I have medical issues for which my Doctor gave me an Rx for a service animal. As the dogs trainer you can bring it anywhere you go. I would suggest getting a vest with Therapy Dog in Training patches (available at several sights online) for example http://www.sitstay.com/dog/supplies/ser ... 2Cyg%3D%3D

NOPE, only service animals are allowed places where people are.
