My dog is RAW fed, can they still become a Therapy Dog?

Yes.  We allow raw fed dogs to join TDN.  There is no evidence to show that raw fed dogs prove a higher infection risk than kibble fed dogs and we believe in feeding your dog a complete balanced species appropriate diet.

The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) produced guidelines in 2017 stating that RAW fed dogs should not visit a hospital environment but in practice, many hospitals we visit have made a judgement based on their own experience and have not excluded us from visiting.  That said, an establishment may ask that they do not have a RAW fed dog in which case we will respect their decision and help you find an alternative placement.
