Class in Animal Assisted Therapy - AAT

Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT) is our advanced class for CHAMP Therapy Dog Teams who have already completed the basic class and have logged some experience making therapy visits.

AAT takes place in settings - usually health care - where you and your dog work with a therapist and a patient on specific patient goals. The dog is incorporated into the patient's recovery program.

Many of our AAT visits occur at The Rehabilitation Institute of St. Louis and at SSM Day Institutes.

This class is:

  • Open to CHAMP Therapy Dog Teams only
  • Offered once a year

To sign up for classes, or for more information, call the CHAMP office at 314-653-9466, Monday - Friday 9 a.m.-2 p.m., and ask to speak with Dana.
