Get Started

After browsing through our website, reading stories and testimonials and determining if your pet has what it takes, are you ready to start the process of becoming a Therapy Animal team?


The path to becoming a registered Therapy Animal team consists of the following steps:

Step 1: Training

Learn the skills needed to visit safely with your animal in hospitals, nursing homes, classrooms, and other facilities. Successful completion of this course is required for registration as a Therapy Animal team.

Step 2: Application Packet

Complete the registration and evaluation form packet.

Step 3: Testing

The Team Evaluation process evaluates the animal/handler team, how well the handler interprets and manages the animal's behavior, and how well the animal responds to the handler. This is a required step on your way towards becoming a registered Therapy Animal team.

Step 4: After Testing

We are here to guide and mentor you as you begin visiting with your pet. You will be given the option of joining Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati, and you will have the opportunity to purchase merchandise such as a vest for your pet, or shirts, etc. Once you decide on the facilities you'd like to visit, you will be assigned a mentor who will help you to get started.

All detailed information will be provided at your training session.
