    I was thinking rather then doing dogs I have heard people have done therophy goats at nursing homes and hospitals.

    What kind of training do I have to go through to be able to do this?

    Does anyone know who I should join to be able to do this in Jacksonville florida?

    How hard is it to train a goat? I know its not hard at all to get mine to walk on a leash but I know there has to be other things that the goat must learn to be able to do this.

    What should I start working on to be able to get into this

    Also out of this topic but when can may goats get female goats preg? how old are the females? Not breeding wise but whats the youngest this has happened with it being a oopsy.
    Say both goats are about 2 to 3 months old can this happen...
    Worried as crazy I think my little male may have gotten ahold of one of the little girls while the other pen was being built

    Dwarfs as well as pygmies can breed at an early age, bucks are fertile as young as 8 weeks and does can have their first heat at 10-12 weeks of age.
