National Capital Therapy Dogs
This one day intensive training class for prospective therapy animal handlers is taught by trained NCTD instructors. The class features lecture and PowerPoint presentations, class discussion, role play, demonstration, and videos. It will cover topics such as therapy animal team registration requirements, different health care settings and populations, visiting tips and techniques, and managing stress and difficult situations.
NCTD sponsors the Handler's Class in the Baltimore-Washington area approximately four times each year, usually on a Saturday morning. Early registration is always appreciated.
The fee for this course includes a resource guide, which will be distributed at the class.
