March 1st, Agile Paws Dog Sports participated in “Read Across America” in celebration of Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Daisy, Catch and Mac joined Tammy and Jessica at Los Amigos Elementary School in Rancho Cucamonga. They managed to read books for 8 classrooms. The students were happy to see the dogs and kept saying, “The dogs read to us!” Daisy’s favorite was the Special Education classroom where a young boy created and drew his own story book. He then read it to her and showed her the pictures.
On May 8th we did a program for two special education classrooms at Los Amigos. Several of the students had an opportunity to “run” our dogs on the nose work drills. It was rewarding making a special day for the students.
On Friday, May 18th, we were back for the mobile spay and neuter clinic. Agile Paws presented an educational nose work program and bookmark making opportunity. The students participated in word and math games centered around the dogs and nose work skills. They also made dog-themed book markers. Daisy worked one on one with boy with autism. He giggled with joy each time Daisy licked his hand. He had the biggest grin and was so joyful. Daisy was incredibly sweet and made him so happy. A truly wonderful day!
