National Capital Therapy Dogs

Here are the steps you take to become a pet therapy team with NCTD. Each step is explained in more detail below:

  1. Your dog must pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen test (the “CGC”) before you start NCTD classes. You must also be able to meet our other prerequisites.
  2. Register (in advance) and attend NCTD’s:
  3. After you pass your evaluation, Register as an NCTD Team and decide which facility to visit (we will help you with that!)
  4. Start working with your assigned mentor to prepare for visiting on your own

There is more information below about each of these steps, and how to register for classes and an evaluation.
