Teams in Training

Meet the Teams in Training

We have several awesome teams in training to become registered Healing Paws teams.   These teams are practicing and preparing for their Canine Good Citizen test and/or for the Alliance for Therapy Dogs test.

Katie and Lucy

Lucy is a charming miniature golden doodle.   She is loving and outgoing.    She's practicing loose leash walking and not jumping and will soon be ready for final testing.

My dog Mom had just been rescued from a puppy mill when she was taken in by my foster Mom. My dog  Mom had four pups. One didn’t make it but three of us did. One girl and two boys. I was one of those lucky boys because my forever Mom adopted me! Together we lived in Georgia for almost a year. Then Mom retired and we moved to Idaho to be closer to our family.  There she met a nice lady that told her all about me training to be able to meet strangers, making them happier and feeling better. “I could do that. I love meeting people!” So here I am working to be a therapy dog. Just one of the little guys in the group but with a big personality and maybe a little southern drawl in my bark.    Kelly is work on his separation anxiety and ticklish paws.  He'll soon be bringing that southern drawl in to brighten the day of everyone he visits.




Kalli _ Ellen
