Therapy Club

Welcome to Gold Star Canine Therapy

Gold Star Canine Therapy Club is a group of volunteers with specially trained therapy canines.

Our canines and their partners offer services (at no charge) from visiting nursing homes to providing disaster relief to rescue workers and victims to working with children of all levels.

We also offer a “Pet the Pooch Fundraiser Program” to help your group raise money. Click here for more information.

All of our therapy canines have received extensive training, which includes: working with an instructor in the classroom and in the nursing home environment and are at least one year old.

THERAPY:

Our Therapy Canines are used in over twenty nursing homes in the Medina and Akron area. All of our Therapy Canines are certified through Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs and are at least one year old.

To become a Therapy Canine Team the canine and handler have to attend a three week course (Offered through Gold Star Dog Training) and have to visit a nursing home with an instructor/evaluator. The training that our Canine Team’s have received covers everything from rule, regulations and proper behavior to actually working in a nursing home environment.

We would be proud to have one or more of our Therapy Canine Teams visiting your nursing home. If you are in need of our services, please feel free to contact us at 330-461-4653.
