Delta Pet Partners training course offered
Recognizing the healing benefits of animals, Verde Valley Medical Center (VVMC) developed the Pet Partners program, which offers patients special visits with therapy dogs. Therapy dogs provide a general feeling of well-being, affection and joy for individuals who may experience stress, anxiety or sadness in the hospital setting. All therapy dogs are registered by the Delta Society Pet Partners and must pass behavioral testing to be licensed.
The Delta Society Pet Partners is sponsoring a team training course for handlers to learn the skills needed to safely visit in hospitals, retirement and nursing homes, schools and other facilities. Successful completion of this course or the online training course is required for registration as a Pet Partner.
The next training course is Sept. 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., in VVMC’s Conference Room B, 269 S. Candy Lane. The cost of the course is $75 and includes the Pet Partners Team Training Course Manual.
Additionally, Pet Partner teams must pass an evaluation. VVMC is hosting 30-minute team evaluations by appointment, 9 a.m.–4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 29, in Conference Room A. The team evaluation process evaluates the animal/handler team in a simulated hospital setting. The evaluator looks at how well the handler interprets and manages the animal’s behavior, how the animal responds to the handler and how the team relates to patients. The cost of the evaluation is $20.
The team training course and team evaluations are conducted by Dee Chadwick, Delta-licensed team evaluator and instructor.
To register for the two-day training and schedule an evaluation appointment, contact Dee Chadwick at (928) 284-5757 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
