The goal of Pawsitive Works is to help empower youth through the teaching and practice of social emotional skills while enriching and assisting sheltered dogs.
Our design of these canine assisted learning programs took into account the effects that dogs have on reducing barriers, how much easier trust is to establish with a dog and the importance of a more engaged learner.
Each lesson represents a key life theme and reflects essential principles in social and emotional learning.
These direct instruction lessons and real world activities allow youth to learn and apply important social and emotional skills through the inspiration and integration of canines. Truly Shaping Both Ends of the Leash
