UPDATED on April 2nd, 2021: For Companion Paws Certify Your Own Dog Program, at this time we are still not able to schedule assessments and final evaluations until restrictions are lifted. You are still welcome to register. We are excited to be able to begin to schedule assessments and final evaluations again, as soon as we are given the go ahead. Stay safe and well! Updates wil be posted every 2 weeks.


All program information, details, costs, requirements, programs, processes, applications, next steps, FAQs and difference between Therapy Dogs and Service Dogs, can ALL be found on their corresponding pages.

As we are a Volunteer run organization and have spent a tremendous amount of time on this website to cover all aspects of our programs, we appreciate messages to TLC's Companion Paws with inquiries that are not covered on TLC's Companion Paws website.  Please thoroughly read through the page links below prior to submitting any questions about the programs we offer.

We only work with Companion Therapy Dogs. TLC's Companion Paws does not work with Service Dogs in any capacity. For any Service Dog inquiries, you would need to contact a service dog organization.
