I know some of you have therapy dogs. Does anyone take their dog visiting nursing homes? Snoopy was certified with TDI (Therapy Dogs International) last summer, but I haven't taken him anywhere yet. I don't think there are any nursing homes around here who do an official program with TDI.
If I start one, what would that entail? What do you do? Just walk around and wait for someone to show some interest?

I don't really know much about therapy dogs, so I hope someone better answers you.
But I've always heard from people that do it that you typically go from room to room asking if they'd like to see a therapy dog. If they say yes, you go in. And the people can hold them and pet them, and often dogs will perform tricks for the sick.
