Dogs Playing For Life
September 10, 2020 - September 12, 2020
Dorchester Paws is ecstatic to announce that Dogs Playing For Life will be at our facility on September 10th-12th, 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 playgroups for the rescue organization, as well as the emotional and behavioral benefits for the animals.
Playgroups 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.
To accommodate for social distancing, the majority of the physical events are through invitation only. However, Dogs Playing For Life is an amazing resource and will be streaming our presentations, going live with groups, and making this a public information session.
On September 10th, we have a seminar with the DPFL team that will be virtually streamed. Attendees of the event will have breakfast provided by Coastal Coffee Roasters.
On September 11th and September 12th, we’ll have playgroups almost all day long with educational opportunities for attendees.
While we can’t invite everyone as we planned in March, all seminars, speeches and playgroups will be streamed on our social media and available for resources later on. Read more about the event at our Facebook page here.
