Brainerd Kennel Club/Therapy Dog School visit

Web posted May 27, 2014
Four members of the Brainerd Kennel Club recently visited the Maple Lake Elementary School as part of the school’s Paws for Reading month. The group spoke to K-6th grade about therapy dogs and how they help people.

The BKC members have all taken the clubs therapy dog class and passed their certification tests. Teams (dog and handler) after reaching a novice level or obedience take an 8 week course to learn obedience, social skills and get accustomed to certain equipment and facilities in order to go out and serve the community as therapy dog teams.

Thanks to Brainerd Kennel Club for offering such classes that help the community be a more healthy place to live. These dogs bring joy by a wagging tail to those that are lonely, make people smile so they can heal faster or help kids learn to read better through the canine tutor program.
