WHY We Are Doing This
WHY It's Important

Frolic believes in the importance of exposing children to new things while they’re still young. Our friendly dogs are the centerpiece for education and learning with all the fun you and your child can expect from a furry companion. We are dedicated to this work because we believe in the humane treatment of animals and want to promote this message to a greater audience through the care and training of our dogs.

Classes & Events

At our classes & events, children and adults learn behavioral skills that they can take home by teaching them the difference between a trained dog and an untrained dog, all within the watch of a skilled professional. They will learn better manners while reveling in the fun that comes along with a furry companion.

Summer
Camps

Children get the chance to experience the dogs from a new perspective at our summer camps. We take the the opportunity to teach the kids about animal welfare challenges in America and how they can do their part in becoming a part of the solution.
