Pet Partners Team Evaluations

(Note: Evaluation Schedule and links for Registration Forms for UNH Durham are at the bottom of this page. We also have a link for Team Evaluations in Maine)

Once the handler completes Pet Partners Handler Course, the handler schedules a team evaluation. Handlers learn all about the evaluation in the course, but basically it consists of two parts:

  1. The skills test which evaluates basic manners and socialization of the team.
  2. The aptitude test which further evaluates the team by exposing them to roll play and experiences the team may encounter on a visit.

ElderPet strongly recommends that if your prospective therapy animal is a dog, that you and your pet take a basic obedience or CGC class before signing up for an evaluation. ( If you took the on-line course, please review the information under the Therapy Animal Program tab.)

Current Pet Partners must take the Team Evaluation every 2 years.

Pet Partners has supplied an excellent handout of reminders for teams before taking the evaluation which is helpful for first timers as well as renewals. This can be found on their website, but, for your convenience, a copy is provided here. Evaluation Reminders

Evaluation Schedule and Required Registration Forms

Please use the following registration forms for Team Evaluations only. This is for renewals, second pet, second handler, and those who have completed the Pet Partners In Person or On-Line Handler Course.

Team Evaluations are $25.00 for new team, second pet, or second handler (Team Renewals are $5.00)

*** Please print out and mail in the registration forms before the deadline. In addition, please register for the evaluation online in the Pet Partners Volunteer Center. ***

Evaluation Volunteers Welcome

If you have taken the on-line or in person course, or are thinking about it, volunteering for an evaluation is an excellent way to see if you and your pet are ready to be a Pet Partners team. The evaluation requires people to role play through prescribed scenarios.

If you are interested in volunteering as part of the crowd for an evaluation, please contact Marsha Barden. (marshebard@comcast.net)
