Assistance Dog Training Program
This four-course progressive Certificate Program allows students to learn about the training and utilization of assistance dogs. Students who complete the Certificate Program are eligible to receive a custom-trained paws4people™ Assistance Dog to utilize in their career. The courses are offered through our Recreation Therapy program.
This semester, the paws4people™ foundation, with the help of the students in the program, are hosting some very exciting events in the Wilmington area:
- March 31 - Assistance Dog Graduation - Courtyard Marriott Carolina Beach Resort. This ceremony will graduate over 20 Assistance Dogs, many to North Carolina residents, as well as reunite former graduates.
- April 1 - A paws4people™ benefit 5K & 1-mile Fun Walk will be held on the UNCW campus.
