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. 

Presentation Interactions

Our Human Education team recently visited with two classes of 4-5 year students to teach about the basic needs of dogs and how to understand dog behavior.  The students then met our the dogs and were given time to practice new skills with our certified therapy dogs.
