Thank You to This Year's Dog Walk Sponsors
Congratulations to Karen and Nova on completing Novice and Intermediate Trick test at the Canine Academy.
If you are interested as well please contact us.
This group is for our members to meet up for walks in public parks with your dog. It will be an opportunity to meet other members, and keep our pups social.
This group is for enjoyment only with no visit journal involved.
Please feel free to contact our committee if you see a day you would like to meet up and look for notifications when our members will be out.
It will be a short walk or as long as you prefer.
Soon we can meet up at an outdoor spot for coffee / tea as a way to keep in touch and enjoy company.
Being a champion/therapy dog team provide many opportunities to volunteer in our community.

FEATURED CHAMPION DOG
Bindi is Lisa's first therapy dog and they have been volunteering with Angel on a Leash for just over a year.
Lisa learned about therapy dog work through her career as well as from the internet, and felt she wanted to share the happiness Bindi brings her with others. This partnership has created an unbreakable bond between Lisa and Bindi.
To prepare Bindi for therapy dog certification, they worked on basic obedience and then took a CGC/Therapy dog prep course. To get Bindi used to distractions, Lisa would take her to Lowe's and the park. Lisa found this very helpful when it came to walking Bindi through crowds.
Their favorite place to visit is the Moorestown Library. On their first visit Lisa remarked that she was surprised at how many kids were there to read to Bindi. Bindi found her calling and was hamming it up with the kids. Lisa and Bindi have their regulars that never miss a chance to read to Bindi. Besides the satisfaction that Lisa gets from sharing her fur-ever friend with the kids, she is also rewarded by seeing how much the kids' reading has improved because of their weekly reading sessions with Bindi.
