Therapy Dog Certification
Under the guidance of volunteer Director of Therapy, Glenn Smith, The Gift of Sunshine certifies pets and their owners as therapy dog teams. Glenn has been working with therapy dog candidates for almost 20 years. He is very passionate about this work and he has witnessed the innumerable ways that a dog can help bring healing to the lives of those in harm's way.
The Gift of Sunshine's Therapy Dog Program is different from other therapy programs because it includes an initial evaluation, as well as a required minimum of 8 sessions of training in a therapeutic setting. The training is done in local nursing homes, schools and rehabilitation hospitals located in Pennsylvania, in Delaware County, Montgomery County, and the Lehigh Valley area.
