WE OFFER EDUCATIONAL PRESENTATIONS
Pawsitive Teams provides community awareness through educational presentations for a wide variety of organizations in San Diego County. Our primary goal is to create a better understanding of the roles that Service Dogs, Therapy Dogs, and Facility Dogs play in our lives. It’s often possible for the audience to meet and interact with some of the dogs taking part in the presentation.
We provide presentations for:
- Disability Support Groups
- Diversity Fairs
- Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops
- Medical Facilities
- Philanthropic Groups
- Service Clubs (Kiwanis Club, Rotary Club, etc.)
- Students with Special Needs
- Women’s Clubs
Presentations generally include the following topics:
- The Pawsitive Teams mission and programs.
- Service Dog training and skills and how they help make people more independent.
- Therapy Dog training and skills and their role in the community.
- Facility Dog training and skills and their role in the community.
Our presentations are either at your location or at the Pawsitive Teams Training Center. All attendees will be required to sign a liability release form to interact with animals or equipment, regardless of venue.
About the presentations held at our Training Center:
We welcome groups at our Training Center in the Miramar area for a more in-depth presentation and tour. This venue offers a wide variety of support equipment and devices to demonstrate. Often we’re able to demonstrate wheelchair etiquette such as appropriate greetings when encountering a person in public using a wheelchair accompanied by a service dog. We may include the opportunity for children to actually experience being pushed in a wheelchair or pushing someone else. Our Center makes an ideal setting for youth groups studying disability awareness.
We would welcome a donation for our demonstration/presentation as it helps cover expenses for handouts and mileage. Our presenters donate their time. All donations are tax-deductible.
Recommended minimum for small groups is $50.
Recommended minimum for assemblies is $150.
Please make your check payable to Pawsitive Teams.
