West TN Therapy Dogs is a group of men and women who have years of experience in animal assisted therapy and know the benefits that can be derived by the pet and human bond.

We provide evaluation and registration through Alliance of Therapy Dogs. All registered therapy dogs are welcome. You must have a friendly, outgoing animal that is trained in the basics of obedience. We suggest that you go to the AKC website and look at the requirements for a CGC Certificate (Canine Good Citizen). Also, please review the ATD website ( for more information about Therapy Dogs and Alliance of Therapy Dogs requirements.

If you think your dog fits the guidelines, email us at If you aren't sure of your dog's talents, we can recommend behaviorists and trainers you can contact in order to have a successful animal assisted therapy career and pass the evaluation process.

We want you to be a strong team and will help you in any way we can . The cost is minimal....$20.00 to join WTTD. Alliance of Therapy Dogs membership is $35 a year which includes evaluation and insurance coverage.
