Have you ever considered becoming an animal therapy team with your cat or dog? Now is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the Pet Partner therapy program and meet members of the local Las Vegas affiliate, Love Dog Adventures.

We are on the cusp of great growth and always seeking out new handlers and their amazing pets. We also appreciate volunteers joining our team without their own animals.

On Wednesday, January 28 at 3:00 pm Sue Grundfest, a Pet Partner Instructor / Evaluator, will meet with interested handlers and their dogs to discuss the program requirements and share experiences of volunteering as an animal therapy team.

Pet Partners is recognized as the gold standard of therapy programs and approaches therapy training and volunteering a bit differently than other programs. So attending an Orientation is worthwhile to determine if this is the right program for you and your pet.

Once you have decided you wish to pursue Pet Partners, the next training course, including the required Pet Partners Handler Workshop, will run over six weeks in March-April, 2015.

Dogs must be at least one year old and have lived with their owner for at least six months. For a list of other basic requirements for Pet Partners, contact sue@lovedogadventures.com.

And if you wish to register for this Free Orientation on January 28, email to reserve your space to sue@lovedogadventures.com. Space is limited. Location will be provided once you register.

If you have a cat you think might be suitable, please attend the Orientation without your pet. The instructor meets with cats separately!
