Teams of RVO club members visit various nursing homes, senior citizen centres and extended care units in the Fredericton area with their dogs. This program allows residents an opportunity to pet, discuss and watch a variety of dogs. Each dog must pass RVO’s Hospital Visitation Screening Test before being assigned to a visitation team. This test involves hospital equipment (ie. wheelchair, crutches, etc). To qualify, participants must have a well behaved dog (two years or older) with at least one level of basic obedience.
If you are interested in attending the next Hospital Visitation test please contact the club to have your names added to the list.
