Our sessions are done both indoors and outdoors.  In our dog programs our instructors collaborate with other professionals such as: Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Early Childhood Educators, Social Workers, Teachers, Mental Health Clinicians, Speech Pathologists and Parents in order to create an individualized program with client specific goals.

All of the dogs have Handlers and are Temperament Tested to ensure safety!
