Adopting a LAP Therapy Dog
ADOPT A CERTIFIED THERAPY DOG
New Leash On Life offers individuals the unique ability to adopt a Certified Therapy Dog. Our rescue dogs that are selected for therapy work have a comprehensive training and evaluation period. We focus our level of training to create well-mannered, balanced, calm and social companions. We ensure that the dog is comfortable with following directions from any handler. The dogs are taken to various locations throughout the community and “proofed” against real life every day distractions and obstacles. Once LAP dogs have completed all training, they are available for adoption by those in need of a personal Therapy Dog. In addition to the adoption application and process, adopters are required to attend training and successfully pass the Certification Test.
