Christi Dudzik brings 20+ years of experience to her visiting animal classes, visiting and therapy animal hospital programming, and work with individuals experiencing dog fear.
Classes are for volunteers wishing to visit in medical and/or educational settings, and for professionals wishing to incorporate their animals into their work.
Visiting and therapy animal hospital programming is for medical facilities wishing to create a solid visiting animal program that includes best practices, infection control, risk management, and ongoing support.
When working with individuals experiencing dog fear, the focus is on decreasing anxiety and increasing the overall feeling of safety when in the company of dogs.
Christi Dudzik, Healing Paws president, with registered therapy dog, Paddy (yellow Lab), registered therapy dog, Ruby (Papillon on lap), and Cozy (Papillon being held), who continues to have no desire to be a therapy dog.

Here's a snippet of what you will learn in the Relationship Development/Therapy Animal Skills class:
Visit our SERVICES & TRAINING page for a detailed description of classes, workshops, and evaluations including registration information.
Services are provided to health care facilities and/or to individuals. Animal-Assisted therapy is conducted by a master-level, licensed counselor within the boundaries of their professional degree. The counselor works with their registered therapy animal, focusing on the client’s specific needs.
Healing Paws Inc. assists facilities in starting and maintaining therapy animal programs, customized to meet their needs. We also consult with established facility programs to maintain program integrity.
Classes focus on training volunteers and professionals to become therapy teams with their animals. Additional workshops are offered for professionals wishing to incorporate their registered therapy animal into their practice.
Healing Paws will share the importance of training, and the benefits of Animal-Assisted Activites/Therapy at local and national health care and/or education conferences.
