Therapy Dog Foundations E-Course

Looking to get started training basic therapy dog skills but prefer to train in the comfort of your own home? The “Therapy Dog Foundations E-Course” is designed to cover many of the foundational skills that your dog will need to master in order to hopefully pass a therapy dog test. Whether you are just beginning your therapy dog training, are new to positive reinforcement (sometimes called “clicker training”), or just want to give your dog extra practice with some of the foundational skills that appear on most therapy dog tests, this online course is for you!

Skills and concepts covered in this introductory course include: clicker training basics, name recognition, eye contact, sit, down, stay, come, loose leash walking, leave it, drop it, body handling desensitization, and much more!

The course includes over three hours of instructional videos (including demonstrations with a real dog) and printable handouts for each skill. Designed to cover much of the same material as an in-person class, you and your dog can move through the material at your own pace and practice whenever is convenient for your schedule. For only $130 you will get access to the course for an entire year!
