Therapy Dog classes through The Good Dog Foundation are offered to dog and handler teams who first fill out a pre-screen form, then come in for a free in-person evaluation for placement into classes. Graduates of the Therapy 2 class become certified Good Dog therapy dog teams and make visits to partner facilities throughout the Hudson Valley in Dutchess, and Columbia Counties in NY as well as Litchfield County CT, and Berkshire County MA.

Next session is forming!
This is a six week class open to those who qualify after their pre-screen evaluation. We will work on basic obedience skills with the addition of distractions a dog may see in a therapy setting. All learning is gear towards the goal of moving on to Therapy 2 and final graduation and certification.
Next class starts June 15th @ 7pm in Amenia NY
This class is five weeks class and is a review of basic obedience work and a full immersion into therapy work. We will simulate a variety of therapy and clinical settings. Obedience cues and manners will be practiced in increasingly distracting situations.
All our therapy dog classes are held in the Amenia, Stanfordville, Pine Plains area.
