Schools and libraries have discovered the value of Therapy Dogs.  TDI's Reading program is a wonderful opportunity for children to interact with and l earn about dogs in a positive manner.  Therapy Dogs give children the encouragement they need to read aloud.

The Dogs bring sparkle to a sterile day, provide a lively subject for conversation and rekindle old memories of previously owned pets.  TDI Dogs come in all shapes and sizes; real dogs with real personalities and real love to share.  Some have pedigrees, some have been adopted.  Find out more about the TDI testing by reviewing the testing brochure information

Therapy Dogs:  The primary objective of the TDI dog and handler is to provide comfort and companionship by sharing the dog with the patients in hospitals, nursing homes and other institutions and wherever else the Therapy Dog is needed. This is done in a way that increases emotional well-being, promotes healing, and improves the quality of life of the people begin visited and the staff that cares for these people.

CFDTC offers Therapy Dog Testing 4-5 times a year.  We offer classes that help prepare dogs for the test by continuing to strengthen the skills needed for success.
