Our Programs

Community Events

Helping Idaho Dogs hosts and participates in community events.   We support our community by providing therapy dog visits, education, and resources at  community events.

Humane Education 

Helping Idaho Dogs provides age appropriate education on how to safely interact with dogs, be a responsible pet owner, and how to interpret a dog’s body language – building relationships of love, trust, and respect. 

Therapy Dog Visits

Helping Idaho Dogs  strives to connect our certified therapy dog teams to locations requesting one-time or recurring visits from therapy dogs to bring the mental and physical enrichment, joy, and comfort our therapy dog teams can bring. We provide  mentoring, support and encouragement to our certified therapy dog teams  to keep our teams current with the latest   certification skills.

Fen is shown here on his very last visit as a therapy dog.  Being part of the BroncoFit events each month on the BSU campus was one of his favorite events.  At 13 years old he has earned his retirement -  Wags and hugs Fen.

Our teams provided pets and loves to students after a Humane Education presentation at Mann Elementary.  The students view a presentation about dog needs and behaviors and safe petting practices then get to meet our therapy dogs.
