COLLEGE THERAPY DOG EVENTS

(for registered therapy dogs and handlers only)

Every spring and fall the Therapy Dogs of Boulder County gather to operate a massive therapy dog event at the Boulder CU Campus and the Front Range Community College campus in Longmont.  This is purposely corresponding to “finals week” so the students have an opportunity to come meet a dog for a pleasant break and a bit of distraction.

Presently, the therapy dog teams visit CU at the following libraries in a very organized and scheduled manner:

Gemmill Engineering Library
Howard B. Waltz Music Library
Benson Earth Sciences & Map Library
Leeds school of Business Library
Norlin Library
Wolf Law Library
 

If you work at CU and would like to be considered to have therapy dogs come to your facility, please use the “Contact Us” form on the main menu and state your request.  It should be understood that not all locations on Campus will qualify for therapy dog visits, but we are happy to discuss it with you.

Requirements:

  1.  Therapy Dog Registration:  All teams must be registered with a therapy dog association.  The accepted registration memberships are:

– Alliance of Therapy Dogs (www.therapydogs.com)
– PetPartners(www.petpartners.org
– Therapy Dogs International (www.tdi-dog.org)

If you are not presently registered with any association, there are several tester/observers for Alliance of Therapy Dogs inside of our Therapy Dogs of Boulder County group who can help get you started on that process.  Use the “contact us” selection from the main menu and let us know you would like to be tested with your dog.
