Learn More about it:

Good-Sam Healthcare Center is a vetted facility working closely with Therapy Dogs Boulder County (TDBC) to bring some wonderful dog therapy to residents who greatly appreciate the interaction on a daily basis.  This Good-Sam Therapy Dog program is a totally volunteer program and operates with team visits at least once per week.  

 The team choices for visit frequency are:

– Once each week, same day/time
– 2nd & 4th weeks of the month, same day/time
– 1st, 3rd & 5th weeks of the month, same day/time

All teams are required to take a schedule available to them using the above choices.  There are no floating schedules or visitations.  All teams are part of a group email list so they can communicate absences and emergency coverage.  A monthly schedule is created and sent to all teams and administration just before the beginning of each new month.

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)

If you are not presently registered with any association, there are several tester/observers for Alliance of Therapy Dogs inside of our Therapy Dogs 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.

2.  All therapy dog teams visiting this facility must be registered with TDBC.  Fill out the form below for more details on how to achieve this.

3.  There may be a facility orientation required depending on what part of the facility you visit with your dog.
