About the Event

 Our 90 minute seminar is required before testing.   

Join us as our evaluator, Christine Macdonald, will give a run through of the Pets & People test to know what to expect and give you some pointers on how to help you and your dog succeed with the Pets & People Test.  Pointers for testing include:

  • how to approach and maneuver around various pieces of hospital equipment (it’s not as easy as one might think!)
  • how to help your dog ignore the food on the floor or directly offered by a person (yes, food is directly offered or dropped in front of dog!)
  • leash control while there is a distraction (no pulling, calm control by handler, minimal voice needed)
  • meeting and greeting new people.  No excess licking or jumping on people allowed, we look for a calm enthusiasm and comfort in a variety of settings
  • calm while there is a noise like a loud vacuum or alarm.  There will be loud distractions that your dog needs to be able to walk by
