I’m still learning about therapy dogs through Therapy Dogs International (TDI) for my next book. I’ve attended a last class, the testing, and a first class, and this Friday, I am taking my dog Abby to a class for an evaluation. Personally, I don’t think Abby is a good candidate because she likes to bark and she has a wild side. She’s a good dog and not at all threatening, but, well, let me put it this way. When I first got Abby (she was about 9 months to a year old), I took her to dog training classes that were scheduled to run 6 weeks; Abby and I attended for nearly 6 months. And, believe it or not, she came to me after being trained in a dog rescue prison program.
