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.
In order to sign up for a team evaluation, there are 5 steps:
