Introducing our FREE WEBINAR Series

Our Every Dog, Every Day! Seminar Program is Now Available in Webinar Form!

With COVID-19 continuing to be a factor in our daily lives, we understand how challenging it’s been to get back to normal. But that doesn’t mean we should stand still and wait. Dogs Playing for Life is moving forward at full speed to continue to improve enrichment for shelter dogs across the nation.

That’s why we’ve unveiled our 3-part Every Dog, Every Day! Webinar Series absolutely free of charge, thanks to the generosity of the Petco Foundation and the ASPCA. When you sign up, you’ll get access to three, 1.5-hour webinars with our Chief Program Officer, Mike Kaviani!

Plus, each webinar course (three total) has been pre-approved for 1.0 Certified Animal Welfare Administrator (CAWA) continuing education unit (CEU) credit by The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement (AAWA), as well as 1.0 CEU by the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC.) Please send us a request for CEU certification upon course completion!
