Humane Education Program

 Our age-appropriate presentations encourage pet owners and families to build a positive, happy relationship with their  pet dogs by understanding a dog's needs and the correct way to  safely approach a strange dog.  

Our  presenters pair up with our therapy dog teams and work together to provide education for children in schools,  libraries, or at community events.

During the 45 minute presentation, we discuss how to:

  • understand and care for a pet dog  

  • recognize a dog's body language

  • how to approach a stranger's dog for petting

 

Children are encouraged to practice what they have learned in a safe environment, using our therapy dog teams. 

April 2022 Presentations

  Our dogs are excited have  once again have the opportunity to share how they like to be petted and how fun it is to pet a dog!   In April we had the opportunity to share dog care basic and introduce some Boy Scouts and their families to the best ways to approach a strange dog.   The kids loved interacting with our calm, trained dogs...big and small.
