They can help people feel at ease, improve their mood, relieve anxiety, and remove social barriers. Therapy dogs are highly trained and certified to show their ability to work in stressful environments, ignore distractions and provide therapy to people of different ages and looks and with many different disabilities.

  • Children’s hospitals

Below are the types of Therapy Dog training we offer…

Private Therapy Dogs

If you are a volunteer who owns a dog or would like to own one, we can help you train and certify your dog as a therapy dog or find one suitable for the job. All personal dogs must pass our temperament evaluation test prior to entering the program.

We evaluate all therapy dog prospects using our proprietary temperament test to ensure each dog is reliable in stressful environments, can ignore distractions, and can provide therapy to people of different ages and looks and with many different disabilities.

We also offer fully trained dogs for sale, carefully selected and trained for this purpose. We offer hypoallergenic, non-shedding Australian Labradoodles from well-respected breeders, including Meadow Park Labradoodles and Ashford Manor Labradoodles, as well as English Labradors and some other breeds.

Therapy Dogs for Hire

We have therapy dogs available for hire since the need for the dog may be temporary or may arise without warning. Whether it is to deal with a natural disaster, help someone get through a difficult time in life, during sudden illness or after losing a loved one, or during stressful time at work or school, we have fully trained therapy dogs ready for quick deployment. For example, CPA firms invite our dogs during tax season to help employees deal with the stress of the busy season.

Facility Therapy Dogs

We specialize in providing fully trained facility therapy dogs. Many organizations and businesses around the country obtain our specially raised, trained, and certified facility dogs for the use in their daily practices.

When you purchase a trained facility dog, we help establish a therapy dog program in your organization from start to finish. We provide everything, including a fully trained certified dog, supplies, handlers’ training, certifications, guidelines, instructions, and our ongoing support.

When our trainers deliver the dog to your location, we teach you and your team everything about the dog, the training, therapy work, K9 care, etc. All handlers are given our performance tests at the end and receive our Therapy Dog Handler certifications. We also offer annual re-certifications as well.

We offer Hypo-Allergenic Australian Labradoodles as well as regular breeds like English Labradors. Ultimate Canine provides facility dogs for and has an ongoing partnership with the following:

  • Schools
  • Funeral homes
  • Hospitals
  • Dental offices
  • Rehabilitation centers
  • Police departments
  • Make-A-Wish Foundation
  • Ronald McDonald Houses
  • Nursing homes
  • Psychiatric practices
  • Medical offices
  • and many more

We also have therapy dogs available for hire for those who prefer not to invest into a full-time “four legged employee.”
