What Makes A Great Handler?

Handlers are just as important as their therapy dogs, and when owner/handlers join an organization like Pleasure of Your Company Therapy Dogs (PoYC), they accept a certain level of responsibility. Handlers and their dogs are tested, accepted, and certified as a team.

What's the secret to becoming a great therapy dog handler? Show up at visits! The residents of the facilities we visit count on us to provide an essential -- and much appreciated -- service, and that takes dedicated members who devote their time, energy, and enthusiasm. Great handlers listen to and connect with patients and residents to make each visit meaningful. Members are welcome to come to any of the regularly scheduled PoYC visits. They also can set up visits according to their own schedules.
