Accessible Training and Agility Program
Designed for individuals with Autism or developmental disabilities who may benefit socially from learning to teach dogs obedience commands and to guide dogs through the obstacles of agility and scent work courses.
The program’s main objectives are to empower individuals, teach responsibility, build confidence and improve communication skills.
Success in dog training requires making eye contact and using clear verbal and non-verbal commands. This program provides an opportunity to work on these abilities in an environment that is challenging but still a lot of fun.
Dogs are patient, love social interactions, and are great motivators for teaching skills that ultimately translate into the real world.
