Wow! Multiple therapy certifications!
What are the biggest differences between them?
Basically with Lend A Heart they go in groups. Most of there BODs and Membership committee members are also Delta. So there evaluation is the same as Deltas with a few added tests to see how the handler/dog will react to multipul dogs being around, multipul people petting at the same time.
I like Lend A Heart because they take the leg work out of finding a place to visit. They have many places that they visit as a group so all you have to do is let the group leader know that you will show up for that visit. This is a great advantage in some ways as I've had a hell of a time trying to find a place that we can visit. I've sent out many letters but no one has even called to tell us off.
