Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati is an independent organization of over 200 volunteer Therapy Teams that provide Animal Assisted Activities (AAA) and Animal-Assisted Therapy (AAT) to clients throughout the Greater Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky metro area.
Our group actively promotes the benefits of the human-animal connection through community involvement, close cooperation with client facilities, and ongoing training, evaluation and mentorship opportunities for our members.
Many of our members also volunteer in the Pages 'N Paws reading program at several local schools, libraries and bookstores.
We are also available for public or private speaking engagements and to assist client facilities in establishing a pet therapy program and a training program for their staff and volunteers.

New Offering - Therapy Pet Training
This class is designed to prepare the therapy pet team to become successful Pet Partners. Cost is $100, which includes a Pet Partners Training Manual, hands on work with your dog, and a 3-hour workshop. It helps prepare the team for the test that is required to become certified by Pet Partners (formerly Delta Society).
There will be four weeks of hands-on training with your dog followed by a 3-hour workshop without your dog. Dogs must know basic dog manners and demonstrate good control before beginning the class. They will be evaluated at the first class and may be asked to drop out if more training is needed first. Current vaccination records must be brought to the first class or sent in beforehand.
Training will be four consecutive Fridays (August 30, Sept. 6, 13, and 20) from 7-8 PM and will be held at Training Tracks (9235 Cincinnati-Columbus Road, West Chester). The 3-hour workshop will be held September 21, 9AM – Noon at Bethesda North Hospital.
