Inland Empire Therapy Dogs, Inc. is devoted to bringing the benefits of interacting with well-trained, friendly dogs to people in healthcare, education and community settings in the Inland Empire. Our services are covered by liability insurance and are always provided free of charge.
We bring comfort and joy to children and adults in acute care hospitals, rehabilitation centers, assisted living facilities, Alzheimers specialty centers and other healthcare settings. Our dogs visit elementary schools for special events and participate in the R.E.A.D.® program where children improve their reading and communication skills by reading to our dogs. We provide interactive and fun “pet a therapy dog” booths for community events to allow people to experience the joy that comes from petting a friendly, well-behaved dog.
We provide weekly training to help prospective therapy dog/handler teams succeed. Our trainers and experienced teams mentor both prospective and newly certified teams. We offer evaluation and certification testing under the auspices of The Bright & Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc., a national therapy dog organization; and we provide evaluation and testing for AKC Canine Good Citizen certification.
We schedule our visits on days and times to meet the needs of the locations we visit and availability of our members.
