A New Adventure......
A couple of weeks ago someone dropped off some brochures at work. Lethbridge is finally going to get a dog therapy program going with the St. John's Ambulance.
I am going to try out with Tate. I truly believe that this is Tate's calling so to speak. He has the most amazing stable temperament I have ever had the pleasure of owning.
I have to fill out a questionnaire, complete with a criminal check, then the Provincial representatives will be coming in to assess the dog, as well as the owner, at the end of August. Orientation will begin in September if you are accepted into the program. All that is required, if your dog passes the evaluation & a supervised trial period, is that at least one day a week you go out with your dog to visit patients that would benefit from being able to interact with you & your dog.......seems like a small price to pay to make someones life happier.
Wish us luck!
