Free Therapy Dog informational session

Event: Free Therapy Dog informational Session
Date: Saturday, 4/17
Time: 10 - 11 AM
Location: Pampered Pooch Playground, St. Louis Park

Love your dog? Think your dog has something special to share? Want to learn more about what it takes for you and your dog to become an animal therapy team?

Marilou Chanrasmi (president of Pet Haven) and her pet partner Ahnung are an active animal therapy team and will be hosting a free therapy dog informational session at Pampered Pooch Playground.

Ahnung (pronounced ah-NUNG and means "star" in ojibway) is a rescued dog from Red Lake Rosie's Rescue and a registered therapy dog and is leaving paw prints in the hearts of youth at schools where she volunteers with her mom. In a couple months she will also begin volunteering at hospice.

Ahnung's dream is to start a movement in Minnesota of animal therapy teams and to inspire others to go through the necessary training to become registered animal therapy teams. Ahnung is loving her "job" as a therapy dog and wants to let you know why you and your dog should consider it too!

What you will learn:
What makes a great therapy dog?
What kind of training is involved and how long will it take?
What are the requirements for the dog? and for the handler?
How do I get started?
