At All Dawgs, we will help you determine if your dog has the temperament and capacity to become a therapy dog, and provide all the skills your dog needs to pass the Love on a Leash Control Evaluation and Canine Good Citizen (CGC) certification tests (please click the link to read about what the Canine Good Citizen certification covers and watch some helpful videos and information).

Diane Blackman, the owner of All Dawgs has been conduction therapy dog visits since 2004 and has logged over 400 visits with her dogs. Diane has also been a therapy dog evaluator since 2005 and has evaluated and certified over 1,000 therapy dogs in the Capital Region, many of whom have gone through the Therapy Dawg Prep program.
