Session 19: How to become a registered therapy dog team
I interview Mandy Pleshaw from Pet Partners. Pet partners is the largest therapy dog organization in the country. We discuss the steps you can take to begin volunteering and doing therapy work with your dog.
In this episode: Have you ever wanted to do therapy work with your dog? This is the episode for you!
Learn about the many opportunities that Pet Partners has for volunteering with your dog; opportunities range from visiting hospitals, hospices and veterans, to their “Read Programs”, where you and your dog help kids develop the skill of reading out loud by reading to your dog! Pretty cool stuff!

Let me know if you and your dog become a registered therapy team. I’d love to hear about your story!
Hopefully that helps!

I’ve been training people and dogs in Seattle for the last decade and a half. My main focus when working with clients every week in one-on-one, private lessons is to help people learn to get their dogs to a functional level so that they can actually enjoy spending time every day with their dog instead of stressing about their dog’s behavior issues.
