Bright And Beautiful Therapy Dogs Charity Profile
The The Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc. is a non-profit organization which evaluates, tests, trains and qualifies owners and their well behaved dogs as therapy dog teams. These teams give unconditional love, boost self-esteem, and relieve loneliness and boredom, to name just a few benefits. They work in nursing homes, hospitals, psychiatric wards, shelters, schools and many other facilities.
The founding members of The Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs, Inc. have been testing, evaluating and training therapy dogs since 1992. We have been working with our own therapy dogs since 1988.
Our purpose and objective is to help owners of well-behaved dogs, as they share the special love and attention their pets give to them, with other less fortunate individuals.
Reactions to therapy dogs are unmistakable, well documented, and amazing. Not all dogs possess the very special temperament that is necessary to become a therapy dog. However, if a dog has this potential we can help unlock and develop it. We understand how strong the love and bond can be between owner/handler and dog, and the unequaled pleasure that comes from volunteering with one's own dog as a team to aid others.
We want to help people get started and we want to help them succeed. The honorable "road" to working with a dog as a therapy dog should be a positive experience and not paved with intimidation, humiliation or stress. Nor should a handler who desires to work as a volunteer with his or her dog, pay a fortune for the privilege to do so.
We help organize for the testing.
We help with training, if necessary.
We guide dogs and owners to places to work.
Our Bright & Beautiful Therapy dogs and their handlers receive many benefits including primary accident and liability insurance within the United States, therapy dog equipment such as a leash and tag, ID card and holder, group visit information and periodic newsletters. We also furnish support and guidelines for safe and successful visitation.
