An 8 Week National Capital Therapy Dogs training  course designed to get your pet ready for volunteer activities and public services.

Due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency put in place on March 13, 2020 we cannot hold our indoor classes until after we reach Phase III of the reopening of Delaware.

As of March, 2021, I will hold Virtual classes. We will meet in a park for 2 of those virtual classes, depending on weather.  

We're looking forward to seeing you all again as soon as possible. Thank you for understanding-Beth Peterson
