Who is responsible for training?

Mrs Schwartz will be the legal owner of GUS and as a result she will be responsible for his training, school will be fund-raising for the dog’s training costs towards him becoming Chilmington Green schools therapy dog. Appropriate professional training will be obtained through PAWs for therapy and the dog will work towards being trained as a therapy dog with a 1:1 trainer with advice/support from Paws for Therapy, The Dogs Trust, and The Kennel Club.

GUS will have an assessment at 12 months old and annually thereafter completed by PAWs for therapy to maintain the agreement that he remains suitably trained to continue to be the schools therapy dog.
