Helping Idaho Dogs, Inc
"Strengthening the canine-human connection through education and compassionate Interactions"
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.
