Dog Program

Why Dog class?

What does this have to do with a college preparatory education for students on the spectrum? Freshman and sophomores take Dog Class once a week, focusing on understanding dog behavior, learning concepts that support good dog training and developing skills needed to be good dog owners. The program examines dog’s social behavior as a metaphor for much of human life. By working with dogs on campus, students can improve their non-verbal communication with people.
