Gracie and I will begin our animal assisted therapy volunteer program at UCI Medical Center on Jan. 5 2011.
We want to thank you for the training that we both received and the information on how to proceed with the registration/evaluation process for therapy dogs.
I called you in April 2010 to inquire about training Gracie the basic commands needed for pet therapy work.
We followed your training techniques step by step. In August 2010, we passed our test for the Delta Society Pet Partners program.
Now, we have been accepted for the UCI Tails program where we will be able to visit people who are "in the hospital".
If you ever need a referral, please don't hesitate to call.
The training for doing therapy dog work was fun. Now the real fun is about to begin!
