Therapy Dogs

Members of the Greater Fort Myers Dog Club are involved in helping the community.

Greater Fort Myers Dog Club volunteers at a children's READ day at the library.

One of the ways we help with our dogs is by utilizing our dogs as therapy dogs for visits to area hospitals, rehabilitation centers, memory care facilities, schools, libraries and many other places.

Our therapy dogs visit patients, serve as READ dogs for children, encourage children to complete their school work, and engage people to discuss memories of their own pets.

We also participate in parades, festivals and other events where our dogs can bring joy and happiness to the community. We love to do whatever we can to help people with our dogs.

If you are interested in training your dog to become a therapy dog, please consult our Training Classes page. If your dog is already trained to be a therapy dog and has passed their CGC, you can contact the Dog Obedience Club of Lee County.
