Pawfection therapy dog training is forging new standards of training and professionalism in an area where currently no regulation or unified standards exist.

We are sometimes asked “what national organization are you affiliated with?” …. the simple answer is that there ARE NO “National” governing bodies when it comes to service dogs, therapy dogs or emotional support dogs (which are basically pets with a doctor’s letter). There are organizations that offer “membership” and “affiliation” for a fee but these ARE NOT ruling bodies, simply private organizations pretending to be more important than they actually are (most are 501C 3’s for the tax breaks) More importantly our standards and requirements are higher than any other training company and so to pay a fee to an organization whose standards don’t come up to our own really makes no sense. Some Therapy dog companies even have the word “International” to sound even more important!

Simply put anyone can “train” a therapy dog, any company, group or individual can masquerade poorly trained dogs without insurance as “Therapy dogs” without fear of prosecution. At Pawfection, we are committed to change this to protect the people who need the support that well trained dogs can provide and to bring real quality and professionalism to a service that is much needed but in turn needs quality assurance.

A Therapy dog is a dog that is trained to provide comfort to others in need. It is entitled to go to places where pet dogs and emotional support dogs cannot, but this is by prior appointment and arrangement at organizations and centers where people benefit from the love and support that dogs can provide. A Therapy dog is a dog that you own and train for the benefit of others in need.

Just a few examples of organizations Pawfection Dog training dogs help regularly include;

The united Methodist Children’s home, Enterprise (Advanced training provided to the handlers by Child Psychologists,Therapists and Doctors in dealing with children with very specific needs)

Wayman assisted living center, Longwood

Compare these standards with many other “Therapy dog” organizations where simple payment of a fee makes your dog an instant therapy dog with a badge and vest (but sadly no real training or liability insurance!) or some companies providing bare minimum training but claiming to be National or even International organizations where the dogs have to wear gentle leaders because a lack of obedience and control!
