Just for kids

2021 Programming Update Underway 
Ages 8 – 12


Students assigned a dog in training are empowered to increase their leadership and social literacy skills. In summer, children (ages 10 – 17)  learn to train Power Paws dogs to assist others. Interactive classroom activities give children the basics needed to train assistance dogs. Each child will experience the unconditional love of an assistance dog in training. Through hands-on activities, students are empowered to train assistance dogs to complete several basic tasks. This program runs from June thru August in four two-week sessions.
