DAVENPORT, IOWA (September 21, 2022) — Eastern Iowa Community Colleges’ Office of Continuing Education is excited to kick off its 2022-2023 “Lifelong Learning Series” with Therapy Dog Orientation, on Thursday, September 29, 6–7:30PM.

Think you and your dog would make a good therapy team? Our ninety-minute class will provide you with all of the information you need to know to get your dog certified to do therapy work in hospitals, schools, libraries, and nursing homes. We’ll also introduce you to organizations that certify therapy dogs and general training guidelines.

Class will be held at Scott Community College, 500 Belmont Road, Bettendorf. We ask that participants leave their furry friends at home, but remember to bring a notebook.

Therapy Dog Orientation is a part of our ‘Lifelong Learning Series,’ which includes a selection of free classes, open to the public and regardless of your academic background or degrees held. As THE Community’s College, we try to incorporate the best of what enrichment has to offer with a mix of courses, workshops, seminars, and lectures for our communities.
