2018 Santa Walk at Boise Towne Square
Northwest Pets Halloween Party
Our teams had so much fun!
Team Hope Walk
Chase was invited to "bark" to start the walk on this sunny blustery Saturday.
Boise Airport Visit
On September 11th our teams greeted passengers at the Boise Airport.
Hillcrest Elementary Summer STEM Program HE Visit
Our Humane Education team taught the children methods to safely approach and pet a dog as well as what to do when an aggressive dog bothers them.
Camp Hodia is a day camp for children with diabetes. Several of our therapy teams were at the event to participate in the activities with the children as they viewed police cars, ambulances, and a great display of corvettes.
Northwest Pets Spring Fair
This is always a fun event for our teams. Several vendors set up tents in the parking lot of NW Pets. Helping Idaho Dogs also has a tent to promote our volunteer services. The dogs give pets and loves and our handlers save on dog food. A win/win!
We receive requests from middle schools during ISAT testing as well as high schools and colleges during finals to bring our dogs. Students feeling stressed can pet and spend time with the dogs. Research has shown that significant stress relief can be realized by interacting with dogs. These intuitive dogs absorb the stress and calm the students.
Our teams participate in on-going training through the year to keep our skills current. We all enjoy the opportunity to work together with our dogs.
Humane Education Presentations
Our Humane Education team presents certified training sessions at schools and libraries to help teach young children how to safely approach a stranger's dog. We teach basic skills on caring for dogs as well.
Dec, 2017 Annual Santa Walk
Even the dogs love shopping at Christmas! During this busy season our teams take their dogs to Boise Towne Square to visit Santa and say Merry Christmas to all the shoppers.
