CLASS LOCATION: Santa Barbara Humane Society (Education Center) 5399 Overpass Road Santa Barbara, CA CLASS DATES: Saturday, May 13 & 20, 11 am - 12 pm Saturday, June 3, 10, & 17, 11 am - 12 pm PLEASE NOTE: There will be no class on Saturday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day weekend. Dogs who participate in our classes should be at least nine months of age and be up-to-date on all vaccines--including Bordetella. Dogs should possess a calm and friendly personality and get along with other dogs. All breeds are welcome and no prior training is necessary. This class meets once a week for five weeks; it is 1 hour in length and is limited to 10 participants. During each class, your dog will learn a variety of basic skills, such as “sit,” “stay,” and “leave it.” In addition, your dog will learn more advanced skills needed as a registered therapy dog such as becoming desensitized to loud noises, meeting new people and other dogs in a variety of settings and accepting hugs from exurberent children. At the completion of our course, you will have the knowledge necessary to continue teaching your dog the skills needed to pass an evaluation by an independent evaluator. (Please note: The cost for an independent evaluation is $45.) After a successful independent evaluation, you and your dog will be ready to become a registered therapy dog team through a national organization such as Love on a Leash or Therapy Dogs International. Course Fee: $125.
