Therapy dog training
Pawfection therapy dog training REALLY trains your dog. we do what other companies
SHOULD do but don’t and there is nobody doing what we do!
Forget 20 minute assessments by organizations claiming to be regulatory bodies, but aren’t, who don’t even train the dogs but charge an “assessment” fee! Or companies that will “observe you” for 3 outings and then pass you on to other equally unqualified groups for “evaluation” before releasing your dangerously under trained dog into the community to meet some of society’s most vulnerable people!
We care about safety, we care about professionalism, proper training and meaningful evaluation. We care that when you see a Pawfection therapy patch on a dog you know that the team has had 6 months of training and has achieved the highest standards unmatched by anyone anywhere in the USA.
We care about our vulnerable end users, we care about your dog and of course we care about you!
Don’t waste our time and money with anyone else – with Pawfection you can achieve perfection!

Successful dogs will be certified and insured by Pawfection Dog Training.
The standards are beyond that of any other therapy dog organization.
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.

Because of the incredible Pawfection therapy training program and the amazing job our dogs are doing the word is out and DEMAND FOR OUR DOGS IS OUTSTRIPPING SUPPLY! We are being asked by the most high profile organizations to provide dogs to help those in need and this is therefore a great time to get on board and join the Pawfection family!
So what does it take to be the proud handler and owner of a Pawfection therapy dog?
The course is 6 months minimum in duration and comprises
3 written examinations for the handler on canine anatomy and physiology, canine behavior, canine first aid & dog law pertaining to service, therapy and emotional support dogs.
4 practical tests for the dog and handler covering obedience, control, temperament, and behavior in challenging situations plus a final comprehensive public access test
Over 160 training hours minimum requirement personal, group and supervised
A cheerful disposition
A “Can do” attitude
A desire to help your community
Empathy and a desire to help others in need.
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!
Every Pawfection handler is Police checked to the highest level with additional national checks for those working with children and dogs are fully and comprehensively insured.
Pawfection dogs are regularly and randomly re-assessed and annually re-licensed and handlers are required to perform a set number of visiting hours per year to qualify for their re-license.
Pawfection Therapy dog training is charged at $150 every 4 weeks until certification with no cost thereafter.
