Dogs Playing For Life

Dorchester Paws is ecstatic to announce that Dogs Playing For Life will be at our facility on March 25-27th, thanks to the Animal Farm Foundation.
Dogs Playing for Life will help enhance the quality of life for our dogs and help our mission to end unnecessary euthanasia. DPFL is a program rooted in the notion that a dog’s natural instinct is to PLAY.
That desire doesn’t have to taught or learned in most canines, as it’s a dog’s most natural form of positive interaction and communications with both humans and fellow canines. A dog at play provides the best opportunity to peer inside the canine soul and explore who the dog really is.
DPFL is an innovative training program that was founded by professional trainer Aimee Sadler. The Program demonstrates both the practical efficiencies of play groups for the rescue organization, as well as the emotional and behavioral benefits for the animals.
Play groups have proven to be a critical enrichment and assessment tool for shelters.
This is a three day seminar that will review communication and training for facilitating playgroups.  In order to assist in facilitating playgroups, the attendance is mandatory for the Powerpoint presentation on the 25th.
Introduced to over 250 shelters across the US and Canada, this program utilizes playgroups as an enrichment, assessment, training, and adoption enhancement tool that helps shelters save lives!
