Bella ~ TD Inc Success!

Bella, as of yesterday, passed her final observed visit and is eligible to be a TD Inc Therapy Dog! Yeah!! Sent in all the paperwork and money. She's going to be great! She turns 2 on Valentine's Day and is truly a sweet, sweet girl!

Congratulations to you and Bella! What is involved in the TD Inc. certification process? Do you know what kind of setting she'll work in?

Hi The Z's ~

Bella had to be tested on criteria such as ability to handle strange and loud noises, rushing people, various equipment, other dogs, people, healing, our ability to work together, her behavior, my behavior, etc, and then pass 3 observed visits. From what I've heard, it's not as hard as Delta, but I don't have direct experience to tell you that for sure.

Some of the types of facilities would include nursing homes, rehab centers, children's reading programs in schools, hospitals, women's/children's shelters.

Congratulations! This is something I've had my eye on as well, but it will probably be a while.

Well done! My Tess was Delta Tested the first time, but I am going to have her retested by TD Inc when my certification expires. I like the fact that they test in the facility where you visit, in my case the hospital. I remember when I had Tess certified and came to the hospital the first time, my first thought was: they didn't prepare me for this...and this....and this...(different floors, machines, a lot of wheel chairs instead of just one, a crowd of people etc etc). I haven't decided on Liza's first certification yet.
