Now offering “Virtual Dog Days” for kids of all ages!

 

Virtual Dog Days graphic with black and tan pup in grass This is a free virtual event May 4 through May 8, 2020.

Looking for ways to keep your children engaged with fun learning activities during this time of staying safe at home?

We’re offering an opportunity to do just that through our new Virtual Dog Days program! Children of all ages will learn about Fidelco’s mission through a variety of interactive activities, including: “live” drawing lessons and Tao Dog Yoga sessions with our multi-talented staff members; a chance to speak with a Trainer, Puppy Technician and client who is blind; and, many more fun activities designed to be completed on your own schedule.

“Live” activities will occur each morning at 9:00am EST.  Additional activities for the day will be posted as well.  You’ll get instructions on how to access all the activities right here. Check-in each morning to plan the day ahead.

Most activities can be done with items you already have at home. However, please see below for supplies associated with each activity so you can plan to order anything you might not have if you wish to do so. There is no need to purchase items as the materials can be swapped for what you have on-hand.

We’re looking forward to sharing our mission with your child in a fun, creative learning environment!
