Register to have your dog tested to be a therapy dog

Beaufort needs more certified therapy dogs. Beaufort Chapter 229 of Therapy Dogs International will host a therapy dog test at 10 a.m. March 23 at BayView Manor, 11 S. Todd Drive, Beaufort. The test costs $10.

Therapy dog and handlers visit assisted living and nursing homes to bring emotional support to residents. They also participate in the "Tail-Waggin' Tutor" program, helping children with their reading skills at elementary schools and the YMCA.

Space in the test is limited, and advance registration with payment is required.
