Learn how service dogs are trained! Kids welcome!
Have you ever wondered how service dogs are trained? Join Village Books and Summit Assistance Dogs and learn all about it! You'll even have a chance to do some hands-on training with a mobility assistance dog in training!
Seats are very limited for this event. Admission comes with a purchase of Rescue and Jessica: A Life-changing Friendship for you to keep, or The Eye of the Trainer: Animal Training, Transformation, and Trust for you to donate to Summit for them to give to their trainers!
Summit Assistance Dogs is a nonprofit organization that creates life-changing partnerships by providing highly-skilled mobility service dogs for people living with disabilities in the Pacific Northwest. By assisting with tasks such as retrieving items, opening and closing doors, and turning switches on and off, our dogs help their partners live with greater independence and confidence.
Note: training dogs will be brought by Summit. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR PETS AT HOME!
