Children’s Workshop

Does your child have aspirations of being a service dog trainer? Or have a passion for philanthropy and giving back to their community? They could be the perfect candidate for one of our Children’s Workshops!

Throughout the year we offer 1-day and week-long workshops where children are partnered with a service dog in training and learn about:

    • Reading dog body language
    • Grooming and wellness
    • Dog behavior and psychology
    • Positive reinforcement dog training
    • The role of service dogs in the community
    • Disability awareness and inclusion
  • And much more!

Details and Pricing:

  • Ages 11-14
  • Sessions run from 9am-3pm
  • Located at our training facility in Narberth
  • Week-Long: $525 per child (includes a Paws and Affection t-shirt and pizza lunch on Friday)
  • 1-Day: $175 per child (includes a Paws and Affection t-shirt, no lunch provided)

 

COVID-19 UPDATE: We are proceeding with our workshops as planned, but we must adapt as things change and decisions are made by Governor Wolfe. If camps in Montgomery County with 9 or fewer kids are allowed to occur during the week a workshop is scheduled, we will host it. If not, we will have to cancel. Either way, the decision about July and August will be made 2 weeks prior to the start of the week and will be communicated to parents via email. Thank you for your understanding!
