This group is for people interested in pet therapy. Members are made up of:

1. people who are currently visiting places with a pet

2. people involved in the court system that are bringing well screened pets into the court system in Hillsborough County thru Paws for Jusitice.

3. Delta Society Pet Partners.

4. People interested in pet therapy in the Tampa Bay area.

Only humane training methods and evaluation methods are promoted. Positive reinforcement is the most powerful way to modify behavior, so all training is focused on the manipulation of positive reinforcement.

2. Open discussion of pet stress signals.
