purposeful pup therapy group
I have created a Pet Therapy Group for those who have successfully completed the Pups with a Purpose Therapy Dog Readiness Program, allowing people and dogs to come together while impacting our community. This training process specializes in teaching dogs to navigate the world with a calm state of mind and therefore making great candidates for pet therapy work.
Our volunteer Therapy Dogs are registered through Alliance of Therapy Dogs. We have had success with Alliance of Therapy Dogs due to this organization being supportive of our tools such as the transitional leash. The transitional leash is our most beneficial tool when asking a dog to be calm and to communicate with our pups.
WHERE AND WHEN
Pups with a Purpose Pet Therapy Group conducts visits all over the Omaha Metro! We visit rehabilitation centers, assisted living centers, schools, and special events. We are adding new visits and facilities every month!
