Canine Inspired Change Informational Session

Have you ever thought about making a difference in the community in partnership with your dog?? Consider becoming a Pet Partner team where you and your registered therapy dog can be a part of a Team CIC (Canine Inspired Change).

One of Pet Haven's partners, Canine Coach, will be hosting an information session on a new course, "Canine Inspired Change". Ahnung, a Pet Haven alum (who came to Pet Haven from Red Lake Rosie's Rescue) is currently working alongside Sharpie (and their moms) working with youth in the community.

The Canine Inspired Change course is one step beyond therapy dog training and will provide a framework and support to immediately get involved in the community as part of the CIC Team (the focus being on fostering emotional growth and teaching social skills). At the informational session the Canine Coach therapy dog instructor will also provide an overview on animal assisted activities and animal assisted therapy training.

If you want to learn more about what you and your dog could be a part of, check out the following Kare11 coverage on Sharpie's mom, Danielle (dog trainer at Canine Coach) or read Ahnung's blog for her thoughts on one of their sessions :)

The informational session will be on Saturday, 1/30 at 1 PM at the St. Paul/Como Canine Coach location.

There's no cost to attend the session .... in lieu of a fee, a donation is being requested for Red Lake Rosie's Rescue (monetary or anything a dog or even a cat could use would be appreciated). You can visit their blog for what they need most. Supplies and monetary donations will be sent Red Lake Rosie's Rescue, along with lots of slobbery kisses from all the pooches!
