Our dogs and handlers will be visiting shopping centers,
movie theaters, food courts, amusement parks, hiking trails,
pet stores, fair grounds, farmer's markets, beaches, parks,
and so much more.
These clinics are designed for dogs who are past the initial

disabled. Dogs need to be at this level to attend due to the

safety always foremost in mind, and thus all dogs must be
temperament tested and approved to attend based on their
training level, skill level, and friendly demeanor.

field trips if appropriate.
