Abilities through Agility

Paws & Effect got a feature article in the January – February 2012 issue of Bark Magazine.

We are thrilled to have our Abilities through Agility program at ChildServe highlighted.

Our volunteers have dedicated nearly 5 years to getting the program to this point. It is amazing what an impact they have had on the children we have had the pleasure to work with (really it's all about the dogs).

We are also extremely excited to see the progress the kids have made over the years.

Holiday Training at Jordan Creek

Paws & Effect mobbed Santa for a photo during a training session at Jordan Creek Mall. We had so many dogs in attendence Santa's little helpers couldn't all fit all of them into one picture.

Santa was a good sport about the whole event and he even whispered to me that the dogs were better behaved than most of the kids and that the only thing the dogs wanted was to please their handlers! (that'll be our little secret)

The dogs practiced traversing escalators, being lifted and carried on elevators and walking through a crowded shopping mall.

Thank you to all the puppy raisers that have made 2011 a fantastically successful year.
