This morning, I took Orso to Kennedy Park in Coconut Grove to be tested for his Therapy Dogs International (TDI) certification. Dee Hoult of Applause Your Paws hosted today’s testing; thanks, Dee! Amaris Hess Garneau was the evaluator for the test; thanks, Amaris!
TDI is an organization dedicated to the regulation, testing, selection and registration of qualified dogs and handlers for the purpose of visitations to hospitals, nursing homes and facilities or any place where therapy dogs are needed. Click here to see what Orso was tested on; it’s like the CGC test he did a long time ago but with more steps.
I always said that I wanted to certify Orso as a therapy dog so he could bring smiles to the faces of people who need that happiness the most. Orso is a very special dog who is very kind and loves people. He is our gentle giant and we are thrilled that we can use him as a tool to help others. Yay, Orso! Yay, TDI!
