Step 1: Train the human end of the leash. Prior to the Evaluation, you are required to either:

Step 2: Have the Health of Your Therapy Animal Screened by a Veterinarian.

Step 3: Have Your Human-Animal Team's Skills & Aptitude Evaluated [Here's an excellent example of an evaluation.]

Step 4

The Pet Partners® website also lists in detail the steps required to become a Pet Partner.

  • You must have a scheduled appointment. All appointments will be made on a first come, first served basis. Space is limited! Your payment will reserve your spot. Your registration form, payment, and current vaccination records (including rabies) must be in our hands no later than 2 weeks prior to the evaluation date. (The purpose of this deadline is to allow us to schedule the correct number of volunteers to staff the event. Any exceptions to this deadline policy will be subject to availability of volunteers and facilities.)
  • Pets must be at least one year old, and restrained by a leash or carrier. See Information Sheet about REQUIRED equipment. (If you do not have an Information Sheet, please download or request one.
  • Per Pet Partners® regulations, you will not be evaluated if you do not bring everything on the required list on the Information Sheet, or are late for your scheduled evaluation time.
  • Please read the Pet Partners® Policy on Raw Food Diet. If you feed this diet to your dog (or any dog in your household) you will not be allowed to visit facilities as a Pet Partners® registered team.
