Conversations with Therapy Dog teams
If you’re like me, you find it helpful to build community and connect with others who are also passionate about therapy work with their dogs. That’s why I started Therapy Dog Talk to meet new Therapy Dog teams around the world and learn more about their experiences.
Whether we’re discussing what it’s like to be an evaluator, volunteer in an airport, or the Therapy Dog training process itself, it is always a privilege to get to know each team and to introduce them to you.

If you don’t know where you’d like to volunteer with your Therapy Dog, it may be helpful for you to start by looking at the tags in the sidebar and filtering by the type of therapy work you think you might be interested in. For example, maybe you’d like to learn about First Responder Therapy Dogs or Animal Assisted Therapy.
I’ve also made it easy for you to filter by Therapy Dog organization and breed to help you find other teams that you may want to connect with or learn about whether it’s to help inform your own decisions or to build community.
