Another lovely visit today from Summit Dog for our vocational training! Today we had two friends to play with! Nick and Micah, we learned that like people dogs can use their emotions to tell or show us if they like or don’t like something. Oh how fun it was to play games, and learn tricks. Nick and Micah are very talented, they even played the piano for us! 🤗 Dog therapy is the best! I love when they greet Griffin on the Webcam during her distance learning with us. Can you tell how much these kiddos LOVE these dogs 🥰🐕

I think our most favorite day of the week is when Summit Dog comes to visit! We learn about all the great job opportunities available for animal care and what they do. And we get to practice our skills with sweet nick, like how to ask for permission to pet a dog and how to understand dog cues.

And that’s a wrap!
Camp week 2: Arts & Crafts exploration.
Students showed amazing creativity this week. They put their own flare into all their projects and they came out great! Each one came up with their own unique brand name and logo. Eric drew his own logo. He loves to draw and is quite artistic! It’s an echidna, his favorite animal and his brand name is “Wonderiffic!” Which is a term he uses often. Grace chose the brand name “G power” with a logo of a strong girl. She loves all things super hero and it fits her perfectly! Megan loves cheese and pizza And when we asked her what she wanted the name to be she said “HAPPY PIZZA” so we helped her come up with the cutest little happy pizza logo. They are all perfect and unique in their own way! We talked about what a brand/logo is and what it’s used for. They came up with their own business plans and how they would like to market and sell their products. We made pottery, wooden trays and T-shirt’s. In these photos they are each wearing the shirts they made 🥰 I am so proud of how well they did this week and how hard they worked! We look forward to doing more clinics like this with RePurpose - Virginia and Sweet Chaos Boutique!

🌟Camps are open to the public, you do not have to be a student to attend. We have clinics and other programs available to the public throughout the school year as well. Follow us for updates and school year plans🌟
