Dogs who possess a natural inclination to be calm and have a balance temperament can become Certified Therapy Dogs regardless of their breed, size, or age.

Dogs who possess behavioral problems are not good candidates to become Certified Therapy Dogs. It is essential these dogs have a naturally pleasant disposition, are calm in sometimes stressful environments, and comfortable meeting and being touched by new people.
