Dogs of Character

DOGS OF CHARACTER is a heartwarming and inspirational presentation giving children an opportunity to learn about courage, self worth, perseverance and respect from a group of unlikely heroes; rescued dogs. Each dog in the cast is a working assistant in the award winning character education program, Healing Species.

Our presentations are a response to today’s educators who are looking for meaningful ways to reach children.  Through the successful results of the Healing Species program, we have combined the most effective messages to address bullying, at-risk behavior, diversity and tolerance and empathy for others.  With the assistance of these special dogs, children are shown a living example of positive life skills and responses.

DOGS OF CHARACTER is a 40 minute interactive presentation introducing 3 to 5 dogs to a maximum group of 200 children.  The presentation is designed to address or emphasize the issues that the school is currently having.  A Healing Species director will meet with the school representative to discuss the structure of the presentation.  Each school will also be given a secure login to download enrichment activities in Language Arts, Social Studies and Character Building.  Cost for the presentation is $525.

Healing Species empowers all youth, especially those who might be "at risk" on how to find help; and then teaches them to be advocates for the voiceless.
