Therapy dogs of Boulder County can assist a facility by discussing policies and options concerning a desired therapy dog program at the facility or many times discussing the rebirth of an existing program.    The purpose of this communication is to establish/review policy to ensure the safety of the therapy dog teams, consistency and organization of the program, and aid the facility towards a successful therapy dog program with proper liability insurance on each therapy dog visit.  The finished result of this effort is called a “vetted facility”.  The TDBC and vetted facility work together closely to achieve these goals.

Summary:  The vetted facility plan has been proven successful to allow the facility therapy dog program to be safe for the visiting teams, a wonderful experience for the people being visited, safe and least risk for the facility.  The TDBC staff is very knowledgeable about therapy dog work and the facility is very knowledge about their present setup and situations.  Melting these attributes together results in a wonderful experience for all involved.  If you would like us to discuss with you about vetting your facility for a therapy dog program, please click on the link below and fill out the form:
