Neutral teams for therapy dog training

give today

Your contribution to Paws & Think provides life-changing programs to people and dogs in need! Our donors ensure we can evaluate & register even more therapy teams and help at-risk youth learn life skills while finding shelter dogs their forever homes.

Neutral teams play an important part in our therapy training classes and evaluations, allowing therapy team trainees to get used to being around other dogs while working. The neutral dog is a registered Paws & Think therapy dog that is experienced in staying calm around other canines and allows the dogs in training to experience approaching another dog without reacting.

To our Paws & Think therapy teams, signing up to volunteer as a neutral team is a great way to continue to practice your skills and keep your dog socialized!
