So, you want to help shelter dogs feel more enriched and find homes faster?
You have come to the right place. Our extended resources provide ongoing support for shelters that are seeing the benefits of daily playgroups or are interested in learning more about our lifesaving programs.
Introducing the Learning Library
Dogs Playing for Life is excited to share our Learning Library with the animal shelter industry. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, our team was unable to perform our regular on-site Playgroup Seminars.
In an effort to continue our support of shelter canine enrichment and training programs, our team has come together during this unprecedented time to create a comprehensive digital library of videos and educational resources. Within this library, shelter professionals can access a plethora of frequently updated video content that demonstrates some of the most common, beneficial, and important aspects of shelter dog playgroups and effective handling.
