"Like everyone is suggesting, therapy dogs are born not made in my opinion.  The two most important qualities I think are a genuine love and enthusiasm for ALL people. All of them. And the ability to settle. Gavin had the proper temperament in…"

"Jack was very afraid of vacuum cleaners. That improved as he got older and was with me longer, but he still always left the immediate area when a vacuum cleaner appeared. "

"I love reading about Jasper. He just sounds so great. It's funny, Katie who I raised thinks the vacuum cleaner is the devil. Ava and Maggie couldn't care less about it. I actually have to crate Katie while I vacuum. She attacks the…"

"Here's an example of what I think makes a dog's temperament well-suited for therapy work.  I have absolutely no interst in doing therapy work with a dog and never have. It's just not something that interests me. But I have…"

"Oh! If that's the case I completely misread that. I still wouldn't do a board and train ;)"

Karen, Jasper and Jackdoodle replied to Steph's discussion Therapy Dog training in Maryland
"I don't think she's talking about a board and train. I think "down for a prolonged period of time without the owner" means holding a down stay for a longer period of time, where the owner walks out of view. Kind of a combination…"

Stacy replied to Steph's discussion Therapy Dog training in Maryland
"That first list of things you're talking about are behaviors not temperament. Behaviors can always be worked on. Temperament is things like fear or aggression. Things that are more hardwired into who the dog is. Barking around new men is…"

"Thank you Stacy (and everyone else) for your replies. What I meant by her temperament needing some work is that she does things like puts her front legs on a counter and doesn't always move down when we say "down", or chews things…"

"That's very reassuring. Maggie is getting so good at leaning against a leg or putting her head in a nice lap for some ear scratches. She is really delightful."

"I promise you that you will only have to talk about Maggie. I've been a visitor in family members hospital rooms half a dozen times when therapy dogs came to call, and trust me, nobody is interested in talking to the handler about anything…"

Stacy replied to Steph's discussion Therapy Dog training in Maryland
"True. But watching the videos I'm worried that I'm going to have to make small talk with strangers. As long as they just want to talk about Maggie it would be fine... I read a facebook meme that said, "Introverts don't make…"
