Giving Back-December 2023

In December of 2023 Agile Paws hosted a dog trial at the Masonic Lodge in Ontario CA.  As a way to give back to the community all competitors and volunteers donated food items and cash to the Foothill Family Shelter.

     

Thanks to the generosity of all we donated over 300 food items and $900 in cash.  It was a wonderful way to help our community.  Thanks to all who participated.

PAWS FOR A CAUSE

In 2023 Agile Paws Dog Sports went back to into our community.  We are proud to be able to visit our neighbors in the Rancho Cucamonga area.

LOS AMIGOS ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

We were so happy to return Los Amigos.  In March of this year after a two year break we were excited to return for “Read Across America”.  We had 4 people and 6 dogs visit multiple classrooms and the dogs were excited to read to the kids.

This was also the first time many of newer dogs were able to participate. They all did a wonderful job.

             

   

MERRILL GARDENS

We also began visiting a senior citizen community.  We try to visit every other month for about an hour, This facility is a home for memory care and these seniors absolutely love dogs!.  Their faces light up when our pack comes bounding into their sitting room.  Both seniors and the dogs enjoyed all the love and attention. We last visited in December for some Christmas cheer.

Success During the Pandemic

With the craziness of COVID-19 nose work trials and classes were cancelled.  However, APDS was able to work through the challenge by having on-line classes then small Sniff ‘n’ Go events and then trials in late 2021.  Many of my students were able to continue taking classes and were able to grow their skills. When competitions opened up again many of my students earn several titles. I am so very proud of them. Here just a small list of achievements. You can see more about my students in the “Showcase ” page.
