Maggie, a border collie mix and Shelly H. of dog training and group classes. They not only earned their Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certificate but also recently passed their Therapy Dog Test. Maggie and Shelly used clear, consistent and humane training techniques utilizing food and ball rewards, verbal and physical praise and remote collar training. Nice job Shelly! I’m so happy for you and proud of your work, love, and commitment to Maggie! Below is an email I received from Shelly today.recently completed in-home
“Maggie just passed her Therapy Dog test and her first observation. 2 more
observations and then I can register her as a therapy dog.
The tester said that she wanted to write “perfect” on the form.
Thanks so much for all of your help and advice. You’ve really helped
us to make a great dog even better! ” …….Shelly H. of Northville, Michigan
