How did you find out about this pet therapy meetup?

Are you and your dog a registered pet therapy team? Do you want to become a registered team or volunteer witha pet therapy organization?

I have never done pet therapy, but I'm interested in volunteering with my dog as a pet therapy team.

Do you have a pet? Please share if you do, would love to hear about your furry companions!

I have an 11-year-old Pembroke Welsh Corgi. He has the biggest ears and melt-your-heart brown eyes. He used to be in agility, and he was once a very active and incredibly well-trained dog. Now he's old and deaf and enjoys his excuse to not sit when I tell him to. However, he sticks by me and comes when I motion for him and would do anything for a cookie. He's looking for something to keep him busy, and he just LOVES people. Walking down a street in downtown Seattle is a challenge because he so badly wants to say hello to everyone (and most people want to say hello to him!) I think Brisbee would be an ideal therapy dog, especially in a situation where he can just roam around a room and say hi to people. His little nub of a tail will wag and his ears will be out to the side to show just how happy he is. He's very docile, super well-mannered and just cute as can be.

Looking for a therapy pet? We have resources to help you find the right dog!

Introduction

I LOVE dogs. They are my life, and I'm just dying to get more involved in a career with dogs. I have no idea what I'm going to do for a living, so I'm volunteering and getting myself out there to figure it out.
