THERAPY DOG CERTIFICATION FOR TEAMS TRAINED AT STAY N PLAY!

We are thrilled to report that 4 animal/handler teams, that went through the therapy dog training program at Stay N Play Pet Ranch, passed their Delta Society Pet Partners therapy dog certification test on Saturday. And another team that also passed used private sessions by our trainer Laura Harvey to prepare for the test. An exciting and rewarding day for Stay N Play and these remarkable teams!

As Delta Society certified, these teams can visit patients/clients in hospitals, nursing homes, hospice and physical therapy centers, schools, libraries and many other facilities. Today, there are over 10,000 handler/animal teams bring joy, comfort and compassion to those in need. These dedicated volunteers and their pets have been credited for helping people forget about their pain, providing distractions so nurses can perform medical procedures on pediatric patients, inspiring patients recovering from strokes to perform more physical therapy exercises than when they work with just their human therapists, and even bringing people out of comas!
