Lighting it up for West DsM.

Nicole and I (well Nicole coerced me) decided to submit an entry for West Des Moines Park and Recreations Lantern contest. Subsequently our idea was accepted. We are going to create (and I say we here) a greater then life size of the Paws & Effect dog jumping over a metaphor.

Question 2

What would you do if your dog touched a client in an inappropriate place?
We were at the facility during a transition time from the first class finishing up their therapy session to the second getting set up for their group session. While getting ready my Pet Partner walked up to the client we are assigned to (no farther then leash distance away) and touched the client in an inappropriate place. The client was upset enough to bring it to my attention as well as the parent that was present.

Blown away at the May Trial



We were blown away with the success of Paws & Effects "Spring Fling" NADAC trial at Raccoon River Park this weekend.


High winds and cool temperatures only knocked the bars down on Saturday as everyone else, including the dogs braved the elements. Thanks to everyone who came out to play. We really appreciate the great distances traveled (Mississippi), the time spent and the fantastic handling skills of everyone playing this exciting game. Thank you!
