Free pet therapy seminar offered by kennel club

The Greater Hickory Kennel Club is hosting a free seminar and hands-on training for individuals interested in pet therapy on Oct. 26 from 10 a.m. to noon, with practice to follow at Abernethy Laurels’ Spirit Place building in Newton.

Pet therapy is a way for individuals to help others through the use of certified canine-human partner teams. Once a handler and dog are certified through one of several organizations, visits can be made in a wide variety of settings.

Veteran trainer and pet therapy evaluator Tina Whisnant will instruct attendees on how to get started with pet therapy, how to begin training a dog, how to become a certified team and more at the seminar. Well-behaved dogs are welcome for the hands-on portion. The public is invited to the seminar, but must pre-register. To register, email emilykillian0907@gmail.com or call 828-569-9575…..
