*Animal Therapy Certification involves extensive training, evaluation, and mentoring by trained Animal-Assisted Therapy professionals specializing in the certification process. It needs to be noted that Delta Society/Pet Partner teams are “registered”, not certified, as Pet Partners does not participate in the handler’s or animal’s training.  Animals that have been certified may also be registered with Pet Partners, however,  most registered Pet Partners are not certified.
