  • Briefly describe the services you offer:

    DogAbility Center provides a unique animal-assisted recreational, educational and socialization experience for children and adults with and without special needs. DogAbility Center participants engage in a variety of experiences with certified therapy dogs that are designed to meet their specific needs. Participants engage in one-to-one activities including elements found in canine sports in addition to learning about behavior, nutrition and veterinary care.

    The educational benefits of engaging with therapy dogs include stimulating imagination and curiosity, improving language/verbal skills, following instructions, and enhancing socialization and cooperation. Additionally, participants derive comfort by experiencing mutual affection by interacting with, and developing a bond with, a non-judgmental and friendly dog. In turn they experience compassion and empathy, enhance their self-esteem, develop a sense of responsibility and feelings of competence.
