All dogs must go through a strict screening process to become Dr. Dogs. They have to pass the health and Hygiene examination, obedience training evaluation and the "Dr. Dog Screening Test", a therapy dog screening test adopted from the Delta Society. The Screening Test focuses on testing the dog's overall stability in all conditions as well as how the dog behaves around dogs and people. After the dogs pass all screening tests, their owners are required to finish therapy dog handler workshops and hands-on practical training before the owner-dog teams are certified as Dr. Dog team volunteers.
