I would love to get my pup certified as a therapy dog, so that we can visit nursery homes and hospitals. He is very outgoing, loves people, not afraid of anything.
I am also doing SchH with him. Though he is not old enough to start bite work, at some point he will.
Those that have therapy dogs, are these two things mutually exclusive? Can a dog that does bite work also do therapy work? Is it organization specific? If they don't ask, should I tell? I am a strong believer that omittance of information is akin to lying, but I personally see no conflict. A good stable dog is a good stable dog. And I would hate to miss out on doing something with my boy because of SchH. But not enough to give up SchH.
Thoughts? Any one done both? What organization?
