Our Mission

VIP Dog Teams goal is to provide Therapy Dogs to perform Goal Oriented Therapy (G.O.T. Dogs). Then as a team with their owner, the dogs will help individuals in our community who need assistance. VIP also strives to raise awareness about the daily struggles people with disabilities face.

We offer Therapy prep classes for pet owners that want to learn how to do therapy work with their dogs.

Our Story

VIP Dog Teams was founded in 2016 by Nancy Mitchell to serve individuals in the Ventura County area with special needs.

It all started with therapy work at local hospitals and libraries with Brewster and Brady the mini-Labradoodles, and now VIP Dog Teams is training therapy dogs to provide assistance to those in need.
