Distinction Of Therapy Dogs From Assistance Dogs Therapy Dogs Inc. Prospective Member Presentation 2015 ©6 Therapy dogs provide a therapeutic benefit to the general public. They are not eligible for public access rights. Assistance dogs give direct assistance to the disabled. They allow their owners to function independently and are recognized by the Americans with Disabilities Act, which gives them public access rights. Handlers shall not misrepresent Therapy Dogs Inc. registered dogs as assistance dogs unless the animal assists the handler as defined in the Americans With Disabilities Act.

What is the Testing Process? The prospective member contacts a T/O to arrange a Therapy Dogs Inc. test. A T/O must offer the test within 3 months of being contacted. The T/O must perform the handling portion of the test prior to allowing the teams in a facility.

What Happens After We Pass? The T/O explains the application process and reviews the rules.
