Kind-to-Kind Class

Participants will learn about caring for pets, how animals communicate, pet requirements and responsibilities, positive reinforcement training methods, playing animal enrichment games and sports, and making pet toys and treats from an experienced dog trainer and breeder. While engaging in these fun activities, participants will develop positive relationships with animals and peers, social skills, empathy, perspective taking, motor coordination, cognition, independent living skills, vocational skills, and more! Children will also know and understand all the responsibilities that come with pet ownership. This class is a great way for children to learn about the responsibilities of a pet before getting one for themselves at home. Comes with a responsible pet ownership training certificate upon completion of course.
