Is my dog ready?

B&B does not require that your dog attend training classes to become a therapy dog. We just care that you and your dog can pass our test! But if you wonder if your dog is ready, here a few resources to consider.

Dogs that have been trained to be aggressive or who have a “bite history” are prohibited from testing with Bright & Beautiful.  This policy applies to situations involving either other dogs or humans.

Note: the B&B test is not the same as the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Test ® (CGC). We also offer this test, upon request, for an additional $15 fee. Passing the Canine Good Citizen test is not a requirement for membership with B&BTD.
