How are we doing this?

  • We are innovative and excited to change how we are doing things, always with improvements and well being in mind.

  • We are promoting best practices in animal welfare and education toward humane practices in animal care and training.

  • We are looking forward to presenting seminars and courses to the public in dog and horse handling and training.

  • We are giving training sessions for our volunteers to learn handling of the animals so that the animals are not confused about what we are asking of them and so they have confidence in us.
