Helping to Train Therapy Dogs at The Kempton

June 5, 2018

The Paws4People foundation raises, trains, and places Assistance Dogs with children, veterans, military dependents, and civilians living with disabilities. The organization provides certification, insurance, and support for the client/dog teams for the duration of their career. Paws4people works with UNCW to offer a course on training the dogs that will later be placed with a person in need. The dogs in training need to be exposed to different types of environments such as assisted livings. For the next few months, the dogs will be visiting with the residents here at the Kempton.  These dogs not only get training, but they also provide pet therapy for the residents here.  Just spending time with them, loving on them, and knowing that they are there is a part of our residents’ overall well-being. The dogs are very well mannered and the residents love spending time with these sweet animals!
