This course seeks to provide professionals who work with therapy dogs a basis for understanding their dogs' behavior, particularly as they relate to stress, to maintain a safe environment as well as provide optimal welfare to therapy dogs. Research on dog behavior, training and the human-dog relationship continues to provide us with new information on how to promote positive welfare in dogs utilized in animal-assisted interventions. This program will share this information with AAI practitioners and teach them how to directly apply it to their work. This program will demonstrate a commitment to high standards for dog welfare in AAI through required evaluation of dog handling in AAI contexts. The Level 1 program is an asynchronous online 6-week program. The Level 2 program requires completion and passing of the Level 1 program with the addition of an in-person, multi-day experiential practicum.
