CKC Welcomes a Therapy Dog Title Recognition Program

Effective January 1 2019, CKC will be recognizing Titles from CKC Approved Therapy Dog Organizations.

What is a Therapy Dog?
It is a dog and their owner/handler who are evaluated and tested via the Therapy Dog Organization and if successful, volunteer their time and visit people in hospital and community facilities. These dog teams promote emotional support for both short and long-term patients as well as the elderly, disabled, children in a variety of hospitals, homes and schools.
How does your dog get started?
You must enroll your dog with a Therapy Dog Organization and complete the required program. The Canadian Kennel Club has approved six Therapy Dog Organizations.
What does it mean that The Canadian Kennel Club approved Therapy Dog Organizations?
If you and your dog successfully complete the required levels of accomplishment at one of the following organizations, you are eligible to apply for a Canadian Kennel Title Recognition and Certificate.
