Meet our Therapy Dog Teams
All of our Heeling House Animal Therapy Teams are required to go through our Therapy Animal Training Program, pass the Pet Partners evaluation, and attend continuing education classes. By requiring such extensive training, we ensure that our Heeling House Teams are operating at the highest level of professionalism. Our dogs are safe, quiet, polite, and talented. They can adapt to any situation from laying quietly to riding on swings. Our handlers are professional, knowledgeable, and can also adapt to any client skill level or therapeutic environment.
