The Service and Therapy Dog forum is for all service and therapy dogs regardless of whether or not their status is legally defined by federal or state law, how they are trained, or whether or not they are "certified." Posts questioning or disputing a person's need for a service or therapy dog, the validity of a person's service or therapy dog, or the dog's ability to do the work of a service or therapy dog are not permitted in this forum. Please keep discussions fun, friendly, and helpful at all times.

I am unofficially my Mom's therapy dog. she hasn't been able to work for nearly 2 years due to injuries in a MVA. I know to be more gentle with Mom and Grandma than with Dad. I'd like to get more training. we live in a small town, on half the budget we are used to.

Not sure what kind of books you're looking for but Top Dog Manuals and The Delta Society are good places to start for therapy/ service training.
