Therapy Dog

Dog-kissing-woman-in-wheelc Therapy DogDoes your dog never fail to brighten up someone’s day? If you think your dog has what it takes to become a Therapy Dog then we can help train, evaluate and qualify you and your dog as therapy dog team. These teams give unconditional love, boost self-esteem and relieve loneliness and boredom.  Pet therapists are in great demand, and there is a serious shortage of therapy dogs.

COVID-19 NOTICE

WE ARE OPEN

Facing the COVID-19 Challenges Together

The coronavirus (COVID-19) has created a number of challenges for all of our families, both personally and professionally. Our first priority is to keep you, your family, and your pets safe and healthy during this public health concern.

We are writing to reassure you that we are available to continue to care for your pet's needs while we take the necessary steps to keep you, our staff and associates in a safe environment.

Our facilities at It's A Dog's World K-9 Academy and Vinjon's Kennel Chino are routinely disinfected with anti-viral cleaners, and in accordance with CDC recommendations, we have increased the cleaning frequency and protocols to include all surfaces that people regularly contact. As we know, hand washing hygiene is an important protocol that we continue to implement for all staff and clients. We provide options for hand cleaning and hand sanitizers for clients and associates, and we work closely with our teams to ensure that anyone who is not feeling well understands that we support them staying home.

You may contact us directly by phone 909-548-3150 or by email thebestdog@verizon.net for clarification and further information.

Thank you!
