Dog Days is BACK!

Fidelco’s Dog Days of Summer program is for children ages 8 to 11.  This popular summer program consists of weeklong, half-day sessions. Children learn about German Shepherd guide dogs, how to care for pups and young dogs, and the training process from a puppy to a guide dog partner for a person who is blind.

Children will learn about the experiences of people who are blind and the positive impact a guide dog has on their lives. Participants will also be introduced to other types of working dogs through visits by law enforcement, search-and-rescue, and other visiting working canine teams.
