Although there are many national organizations to certify with The Alliance of Therapy Dogs (ATD) is a wonderful group who listens to the needs of its members and the locations they visit. Please visit their website www.therapydogs.com to learn more about the organization.
In Dillon, our local Therapy Dog Group is called Dillon Caring Canines. We are all certified members through ATD that means we are covered under an insurance policy when we do our visits and our dogs have passed an obedience test and three observations at various sties around town to become certified.
We currently have visitation programs with the following organizations in Dillon, MT:
-Elementary School Reading Program
-University of Montana Western
-Renaissance Assisted Living
