Pet Partners Team Evaluations

loader

These are individual evaluations of human-animal teams who have taken the Pet Partners Online Handler Training Course and believe they have the skills and aptitude to become a visiting therapy team.  Though it is not a requirement, we encourage handlers to take the Therapy Animals of Utah Fur-Real Handler Practicum before signing up for their team evaluation in order to better prepare themselves for this friendly but rigorous test. 


Thursday Evening Team Evaluations at Millcreek

These are individual evaluations of human-animal teams who have taken the
Pet Partners Online Handler Training Course and believe they have the skills
and aptitude to become a visiting therapy team.  Though it is not a
requirement, we encourage handlers to take the Therapy Animals of Utah Fur-Real
Handler Practicum
before signing up for their team evaluation in order
to better prepare themselves for this friendly but rigorous test. 




The handler will be role-playing a visit to a real facility with two licensed
Pet Partners Team Evaluators and 4 volunteers, displaying the obedience skills
their animal has, such as walking on a loose lead, sit, down, stay, and come
when called.  The handler will also be showing that they know how to
support their animal as they walk through a crowd, pass another animal, and
encounter people who move clumsily, use medical equipment, use high, low, and
angry voices, and gather to pet the animal all at once.   The handler
and animal must be groomed and dressed appropriately for visiting in a clean
hospital environment.

Evaluations are by appointment only.  Contact
our evaluation coordinator at evaluations@therapyanimalsutah.org
FIRST for available times.


You will also need to sign up on the Pet Partners website (www.PetPartners.org)  ONLY AFTER
YOU ARE SIGNED UP HERE.  Ask the evaluation coordinator for details.



Be sure and read all the reminders you receive from our evaluation coordinator
so you know what to bring with you.  Handlers who come to the evaluation
unprepared will need to reschedule.
