Therapy dog training at Rescue Village

Geauga Humane Society's Rescue Village is hosting a training class beginning March 13 for those who would like their canine companion to work as a therapy dog.

Dogs must be screened by the trainer prior to the class. Screening will take place at 9:30 a.m. Feb. 6. To make an appointment for the screening, call Barbara Collins at 440-285-4679.

The six-session, Sunday-morning class will take place from 10 to 11 a.m. at Rescue Village, 15463 Chillicothe Road in Russell Township.

Cost of the class is $125 and registration is required prior to class date. To register, call the number listed above. At the completion of the class, dogs who are at least 1 year old will be tested to receive therapy dog certification.

Geauga Humane Society's goal in hosting the class is to recruit graduates as Rescue Village volunteer Ambassadors.
