Best of Virtual Dog Days Event LogoFidelco Guide Dogs is thrilled to offer the Best of Virtual Dog Days of Summer Children’s Program for children of all ages! We’re bundling favorite activities and guest videos based on reviews from those who participated in previous weeks. Your child will engage in hands-on activities and will have the chance to hear directly from Fidelco’s trainers, puppy technicians, and other special guests. They’ll learn about Fidelco’s history, the training process of our dogs from pup to guide dog, and our remarkable clients who are blind. We’re also adding two extremely popular “live” virtual activities!

This one-week-only program is being offered at a special rate of $99 and includes all the supplies your child will need to complete the activities. Your child will receive their own “Fidelco Kit” in the mail with everything they’ll need for each activity, so there’s no need to scramble to order supplies.

Instructional videos for activities, pre-recorded videos and two virtual sessions are set up through email links and Zoom. Your involvement as a parent/guardian will depend on your child’s age. Some hands-on activities may require assistance for younger children. Most activities can be conducted on your own schedule, making this a stress-free, fun week of engaging and educational fun. The two “live” virtual events will be conducted at 1:00pm EST.
