|Hi! I am my mom's service dog and I have been trained to be a therapy dog as well. She feels we are a great breed for any type of work as long as we have had training. I am laid back and easy going. My sister on ther other hand is hyper and has had significant less training than I have had. Tara just came to live with us. She is extremely loveable but not as approachable as I am. I am cool with wheel chairs, canes, casts . . . Tara sometimes barks at some people, but I love everyone!!! We both love children!!!
It all depends on your temperment and training. You must be well groomed for each visit. When we were in training for therapy dog, everytime we made a visit we had to have a bath prior. Mom says she would start with the Canine Good Citizens exam. If you pass that then take a class that will prepare you for therapy visits. Mom is training Tara prior to taking the CGC class. She likes for all her dogs to have their CGC.
Feel free to contact my mom with any questions. She says Cockers are the Best we can do just about anyithing within limits of our small stature!!!
