Very cool. I'd like to make Poppy a therapy dog someday. But I'd like to go with her... It seems like only zootherapists can use the trained animals? In other words, not only do you have to train your dog but your need to get training yourself if you want to go and visit people with your dog? In my corner of the world that's the way it works... I think. Bit complicated, and very expensive.

In the US, you have to pass test with the dog, you really need a bomb proof dog!
