Learn all about what dogs are telling us through non-verbal communication!  This class explores the various expressions of our canine friends and also shows how your body language can influence their reactions to you. 

The material is great for your volunteer or foster work and for your interactions with any dogs you may encounter every day!

One of our most popular volunteer activities is our Hiking Hounds program!  Volunteers take our most energetic shelter dogs on hikes as part of our enrichment programming.  There are no prerequisites and participants are not required to be current volunteers.  If you love hiking in the great outdoors with dogs who are excited to be out of the shelter for a while, this is the activity for you!

For more information about Hiking Hounds (including physical requirements and guidelines) or to request an application, please e-mail ahshikinghounds[at]outlook[dot]com.
