AKA Therapy Dog Program

AKC Therapy Dog LogoThe American Kennel Club® (AKA) and responsible breeders aim to preserve and improve the breeds they dedicate their lives to. The AKC leads the charge by donating millions of dollars to canine health research as well as education programs.

The AKA Therapy Dog Program recognizes AKC dogs and their owners who have given their time and helped people by volunteering as a therapy dog and owner team.

The AKC Therapy Dog Program awards an official AKC title awarded to dogs who have worked to improve the lives of the people they have visited.

The AKC Therapy Dog title (THD) can be earned by dogs who have been certified by AKC recognized therapy dog organizations and have performed 50 or more community visits.

AKC does not certify therapy dogs; the certification and training is done by qualified therapy dog organizations. The certification organizations are the experts in this area and their efforts should be acknowledged and appreciated.
