Differently Abled Workshop. Understanding Deaf, Blind and Deaf-Blind Dogs; how to communicate, adopt and what to expect
Whether you have a dog that is losing or has lost their vision/hearing, work for a shelter, volunteer with a rescue, are a potential adopter or are interested in seeing your No Kill initiative reach out to the differently abled, this is a great seminar for you to learn how to help them! Handouts with touch charts & hand signs for commands, handouts for shelters and rescues to use when adopting differently abled dogs and live demonstrations of differently abled dogs performing basic obedience and agility are all part of this seminar. This is a four hour workshop.
