PosAbilities Academy and Summit Dog have teamed up to present the “Intro to Dog Careers” program.
Summit Dog professionals have developed the “Intro to Dog Careers” program based on their wealth of experience and educational backgrounds. The classes are based on various dog careers to allow the students at PosAbilities Academy the chance to learn and experience these jobs and identify the ones they would like to learn more about.
PosAbilities Academy students are thrilled to learn how to care for dogs as they attend vocational training designed to help them prepare for future employment. Each career topic starts with a face-to-face instructional component that covers an overview of the requirements and skills necessary to perform a particular job. This is followed by hands-on training, where the students get to try the job by working with a Summit certified therapy dog. Here, they learn which aspects they like or dislike about the work. Whenever possible, a field trip is conducted for each career topic, so the students can talk to staff members who are doing the job activities. This allows the students to see “real-life” situations that go beyond the classroom.
We are raising $5,000 to fund the continuation of our program by paying for educational material for the students to keep, animal care, professional services, transportation, and field trip expenses.
