Spring Agility Trial

Fox Valley Dog Training is proud to announce the 2015 Spring Agility Trials, to be held on Saturday and Sunday, March 28 & 29. Important Note: We're at a new venue this year, Players Indoor Sports Center, in Naperville. Get your Premium List or contact Cathy for more details.




I have received several requests for Registered Therapy Dog Teams.

The first request is for Therapy Dog Teams to visit in a senior residential center located in St Charles. Halina is a small senior residential home that is looking for registered Therapy Dog Teams to visit the seniors that reside there, they have two locations in the St Charles area.

The second request is from a Reading Specialist in the District 301 school system.
We need Therapy Dog Teams for their "Reading With Rover Program". This is a great program where children with reading difficulties come and read to a dog, which is a non judgmental reading partner. This helps children get excited about reading and has shown to improve their reading skills and enjoyment of reading.

All teams MUST be registered Therapy Dog Teams, no exceptions. You will need to provide proof of current vaccines and registration with a Therapy Dog organization such as TDI or Pet Partners. We need 4 Teams to cover each school that will be participating in this Read program.

This is a pilot program within this district and will start with one school this January and expand to three additional schools in the Spring. The first school will be Country Trails in Elgin, which will take place in January during morning school hours. The other schools that will join this program are Lily Lake, Prairie View and Howard B Thomas.

Please contact me if you are interested in either of these opportunities.
