At Kids and Canines we evaluate and use trained dogs for our programs. These dogs were often trained by our program students for use in our programs. Like our students these dogs are each unique and have made lasting impressions on those in our programs. You can learn more about our dogs below.
While most of our programs utilize trained dogs we do from time to time adopt dogs that we will train through our programs. These dogs are usually adopted from area shelters and rescue groups. This not only saves the life of a dog, it sends a positive message to our students – that you don’t have to come from a perfect home to have value. This is a strong message that resonates well with some of our students, especially those who have found themselves living in group homes and foster care.
