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. 

May 2022 Presentations

  Our teams had the opportunity to visit Hazel Lake Elementary in May to present information about dogs and provide information and color books to the students on dog care and the safest way to pet a dog.  Unfortunately we do not have photos from the event.
