Dog less Handlers
You may be interested in working with us as a volunteer within our Therapeutic Dog Services dog visiting program, but you do not own a dog, or your dog is not appropriate due to temperament.
We have some therapeutic teams in which own more than one therapy dog per family.
Our policy only allows handler to handle one dog at a time on visitations for obvious reasons being safety!
Dog less handlers are volunteers who don't have dogs of their own, but would like to be involved in handling someone else's "extra" dog.
A dog less handler would accompany the Therapeutic Dog team on their visit and handle the "extra" dog!
As you can appreciate it is only appropriate for one handler to be in control of 1 dog at a time.
