Helping Idaho Dogs news in 2015:

We would like to thank Coldwell Banker for including an article and photos about Helping Idaho Dogs in their November/December 2015 Real Magazine on page 9! Coldwell Banker and their Boise Tomlinson Group is committed to sharing information about local organizations making a difference.

Congratulations to one of our therapy dog teams, Jennifer & Cody, for receiving Horizon Home Health & Hospice's 2015 Volunteer of the Year award! Jennifer & Cody received the award in November, 2015. We have three therapy dog teams visiting residents for Horizon, and we are proud of their commitment!

Five of our therapy dog teams responded to a request to bring comfort to children at an Emmett school in November. Our teams brought unconditional love and cheer to these students, and it was a privilege to be there. Kudos to our dedicated therapy dog teams! View photos here.

Enjoy this video of our awesome Trick Team in action at the Canine Companions for Independence DogFest Walk ‘n Roll on September 27, 2105. Thank you to the Trick Team for bringing smiles and entertainment to others!

We would like to thank you for joining us at our Muzzle Up! seminar that was held on September 22, 2015! Maureen Backman of Mutt About Town did a great job educating us about muzzles and setting dogs up for success!
