Why Dogs with a Purpose?
Dogs with a Purpose aims to be a center of excellence for canine assisted therapy. It is our goal to provide
dog therapy bonded teams that not only meet our high certification requirements but also demonstrate the right
temperament and exhibit a strong bond between handler and dog.
With respect to facilities and organizations we will:
Work with your chosen representative(s) to define your specific needs and communicate these needs
to our dog therapy teams;
Connect you with appropriately certified dog therapy teams. Some therapy dog teams are more
comfortable in certain settings.
For example, dog; Therapy teams whose main focus is reading with children may not be comfortable
going to a rehabilitation or hospital setting.
We have additional certification requirements for dog therapy teams operating in certain settings e.g.
to volunteer at a hospital, dogs have passed our "Gold Certification".
Continually train our dog therapy teams with ongoing workshops, seminars and communications; Monitor compliance of our dog
therapy teams with our rules and regulations, and Maintain our high level of insurance to provide coverage for both our volunteer participants and all recipients of canine assisted therapy
We are a non-profit organization with volunteer members so there is no cost to your facility to receive canine assisted therapy from Dogs with a Purpose. If your facility would like to start a therapy dog program, please contact Rebecca Bullock, 919-810-1247, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to hear from you!
