Online Education

Interested in taking an online course?

It takes more than a great animal to create a meaningful and safe interaction with a therapy animal. Pet Partners is committed to creating rigorous and professional training experience to support handlers in providing AAI with a focus on safety and welfare considerations for both the client and the animal. In our efforts to increase safe and effective Animal Assisted Interactions Pet Partners has recently introduced two new online courses. Canine Body Language, and Infection Prevention and Control which has been endorsed by The Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA). We are currently offering a bundle deal when you purchase both courses. Click here to open the class description page.

If  you are starting the process of becoming a Pet Partners Therapy Animal Team please start your journey in the Volunteer Center instead.
