Buddy's PALS (Pet Assisted Learning Service) teams go into Lansing area schools to help children in our educational system at all grade levels with reading. Children also develop positive relationships with animals and learn the critical skills needed to care for our companion animals: compassion, responsibility, respect, and kindness. The Buddy's PALS prep class reinforces the basic skills required for the Buddy's PALS test, including sit, stay, down, leave-it, loose leash walking, along with more advanced skills to prepare for the school environment, including interacting with children and adults. A beginner or basic skills class is recommended before taking this class. Teams will also learn the skills to pass the Canine Good Citizen test. Learn more about Buddy's PALS on facebook!
