Before visiting your facility, Ottawa Therapy Dogs will assess your programs and client's needs in order to select a therapy dog team that is best suited for your unique situation. New therapy teams are accompanied by a mentor during the first visit to your facility.

What we need from you:

Designated contact person to coordinate visits and designated staff to accompany the therapy dog team during visits.

Suitable physical space for a visit.

In a retirement home, this is often a common area.

In a school, this should be a quiet room separate from the classroom for one-on-one sessions.
