Does your child absolutely LOVE DOGS?

Are you considering adding a dog to your family?

Perhaps you cannot have your own dog at this time.

Might your child gain the confidence and passion leading to a career in canine behavior, grooming or veterinary medicine?

DogSmart is a unique children’s activity designed for children aged 8-12. Sessions are held after school or on Saturday mornings.

Each series is divided into 4 sessions that include an introduction to topics related to canine care, management, nutrition, training and behavior.

For the best scheduling, form your own group of 5 or more children.

Each child receives a certificate of completion at the end of each series.
