Most facilities require some type of documentation before you can start a visit, i.e. therapy dog registration and health record. In addition it's common to have a "Trial visit" so your therapy dog fits the needs of the facility.

I do recommend registering with one of therapy dog organizations, for your own protection against accident liabilities.

With Therapy Dog International, there is a look-up for evaluator in your geographical area. If there is no evaluator available in your area they do accept your CGC plus a letter from the AKC obedience judge for limited membership.

Their website is tdi-dog.org

Good luck!

Great advice everyone!

I learned that with GSDs (perhaps other breeds too)rewarding the good behavior works very well.

When I was potty training the girls, I rewarded them with lots of praise (in a high pitched voice!) whenever they pottied outside. I even jump up and down, showing how happy I was (I call it our "potty-dance") I am sure my neighbors thought I was a nut-case!!! laugh out loud

It's funny, even to this day, when they go potty, they look at me expecting priases and my potty-dance"!! big laugh

I am so sorry Brandy.

It saddens me to think of Medea's passing. She was a true GSD Diva and I always enjoyed your post about Medea. It came straight from your heart and I could always feel so much love in your writing. Medea was truly loved and cherished.

Big hugs to you Brandy - just know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your sweet girl at the Rainbow Bridge.

Snowy's Indian name is "Wiggly Butt"

When she wag her tail her entire hind-end wiggles. When she was younger, she used to wag her tail/wiggle her butt so hard that she lost her balance. big laugh big laugh

Snowy has a really bushy tail and she swishes it around like a metronome. My hubby is no longer allowed to put his soda on the coffee table.!

Well it's not so bad though - my former coworker has a male rottweiler with a natural tail. He cracked the screen of her 52" LCD TV with his wagging tail! (I was never a fan of tail docking ...but I can see why it's necessary with some breeds)

We had tons of snow in Michigan where we lived - but we are in Japan now and it's too warm for snow (mom works for the US Army) here.
