SD0202 ILGHAUS- I am sorry, I should've been more clear, I was first thinking of registering with both Therapy Dogs, Inc. and Therapaws (A michigan agency), however, I think it would be more suitable for me just to do Therapy Dogs, Inc. and just set up appts. by myself, instead of with the assistance of Therapaws

If you go out on your own make sure you have very good liability insurance. You can be sued if your scratches, nips or even if someone falls over your dog. This reason is why some like to reg. with a large organization since the big ones have insurance for their teams from $1M and up.

Blitzkrieg1 I do therapy work, personally I wouldnt use an IPO dog for the work.

llombardo You don't have to work with a group to do therapy. I do it on my own without a group. All they(nursing home)requested was the certificate and proof of rabies.

Chicagocanine A lot of organizations will not allow a dog trained in protection or bitework.

SD0202 Yah that is why I definitely wanted to clarification if it was a good idea to go for both activities. I will definitely be upfront with the tester, I just want to make sure that it is safe for my dog, my "potential" clients, and everyone involved. I also don't want any legal issues on top of that. I just want to help people, and I want my dog to have fun and have a job.

VomBlack Odin is registered through TDI (Therapy Dogs International) and when we were tested I was upfront about his bite work training. The evaluator was perhaps a little more thorough with her assessment, but overall we had no issues. Like some have said it really depends on the dog.
