Hello Erica! Welcome to the DTA! What kind of tricks would you like to teach your dog? What kind of dog do you have? I enrolled my Border Collie in a therapy program a while back that involved going to old age homes.
I used to do therapy dog with a St. Poodle, and a GSD cross. I wanted to do it with my deaf dog Scout, but as the program is no longer run by people I can work with, I cant. However Scout and I have done some visits with disabled adults in a group home. they adored the deaf dog who can do more tricks than most hearing dogs! LOL
