Well, we are so proud of our little buddy, Baxter!! He passed his last test to be a Therapy dog team tonight! Maddy has been in the program for a little over a year now, so it will be great now that Baxter and my Husband can join us on our visits
Thanks everyone, it's neat now that we can all go! Not that Baxter really cared, he always stayed home with a fresh marrow bone to distract him! It is really a great experience though to be able to help others and they always appreciate it so much! We are with Fido's for Freedom, based out of Laurel, Maryland. They are a great organization, they do more than just Therapy Dog visits. They also are involved in training and placing service and hearing dogs with clients.
Aquagirl- I really recommend looking in your area for a similar organization to join with Jetta. I heard about such programs from a friend and went home and goggled "Therapy Dogs, Md" and that was how I found them! If Jetta loves attention and you have free time, its a great way help others! Not to mention the training at no cost to you...all you have to do is attend(at least its that way with this organization)!!!!
