NEWSFLASH - Read about us in the Memphis Commercial Appeal.
See our first therapy dog team at Memphis International Airport on the "PHOTOS" page on this website.
West TN Therapy Dogs is a group of men and women who have years of experience in animal assisted therapy and know the benefits that can be derived by the pet and human bond.
We provide evaluation and registration through Therapy Dogs Incorporated, though all registered therapy dogs are welcome. You must have a friendly, outgoing animal that is trained in the basics of obedience. We suggest that you go to the AKC website and look at the requirements for a CGC (Canine Good Citizen). If you think your dog fits the guidelines, email us at West TN Therapy Dogs If you aren't sure of your dog's talents, we can recommend behaviorists and trainers you can contact in order to have a successful animal assisted therapy career and pass the evaluation process.
We want you to be a strong team and will help you in any way we can. The cost is minimal....$20.00 to join WTTD and $35.00 to be evaluated and become a member of TDInc. and be covered by their insurance for a year. Please complete this application and mail it in to become a member of WTTD.
We would love to welcome you to our group and get started on a very fulfilling volunteer career with your best friend.
