On June 6, 2011 the kids and dogs in the Laws & Paws program graduated from their 6- week training class. We are so proud of how far the kids have come in the training of their dogs. It has been a real treat to see their confidence grow as they make the connection with their dogs and master their training techniques.

As part of graduation, the kids took their dogs through a training course that included various "challenges" such as sitting, walking fast, walking slow, walking in a circle, laying down and making turns. The kids did such a great job and handled their dogs well.

Awards were given to the dogs for best agility course, best obedience skills and most improved. The kids received a mold of their dog's paw print and a framed picture of them and their dog to remember their time in the program.

After graduation the kids and their parents enjoyed a nice reception with cake and other goodies. During the course, the kids made scrap book pages of their dogs which would be given to the people and families who adopt the dogs.

We would like the give a BIG THANK YOU to the City of SeaTac! With their support we were able to provide a nice graduation reception for the kids and their parents.
