We know when a dog walks into a room it changes the energy. A dog will make people stop and smile, completely forgetting about whatever hardship may be worrying them. This quality can be helpful to people in many circumstances, whether it be dealing with an injury, illness or just having a hard time coping with daily life. Animals have been shown to help alleviate pain, lower blood pressure and improve healing. The Therapy Dog Program at Inghram’s Sit N Stay Dog Academy trains dogs to be friendly, patient, confident, gentle, and at ease in all situations. We teach them be content and composed when being handled, sometimes clumsily.


OUR THERAPY DOGS’ GOAL IS TO OFFER COMFORT AND COMPANIONSHP TO PATIENTS IN HOSPITALS, NURSING HOMES, AND MENTAL HEALTH CENTERS.

Therapy Dogs may also be seen visiting libraries and schools to “listen” to young children read. In addition to Basic Obedience Training, Therapy Dogs need special training to pass the AKC Canine Good Citizen Certificate Test (CGC) and Therapy Dog International requirements before entering a Therapy Dog Program.
