The ambassadorship program is made for children who really love dogs, who want to learn more about dogs, and hope to have a future working with dogs. Children will need to take all levels of programming in order to become an ambassador.
In this first level, children will learn how to teach a dog basic commands, properly care for a dog, and proper approach to dogs. By the end of the program they will not only be well prepared for the next level of ambassadorship, but also earn Frolic Buddy Care privileges.
Ages 5 – 7 years old
In this second level, children will learn how to correct common dog misbehavior, start to learn simple dog grooming techniques, and learn about animal welfare. By the end of level 2, participants will be qualified to be a Frolic Companion for a Week to one of our dogs!
Ages 8 – 10 years old
Level 3 of our Ambassador program is made for elementary and junior high school age children who have a strong interest in dog care and behavior. The third level will provide children ample opportunities to experience dog care and etiquitte in the real world.

Young Entrepreneur Program
The Young Entrepreneur program is for children who love dogs and want to see what it is like starting a dog-centric business. The children will set up and run a mini corporation where they each have title.
4-14 years old
The overcoming fear course is specially designed for anyone who may be nervous about interacting with dogs. It is important for them to learn how to have safe interactions with dogs, as they will encounter them often throughout their lives. We start the course without a dog present, instructing them on basic dog facts and skills. Then, we slowly start bringing the dog in for classes, by the end they can easily approach the dog and even teach it some commands.
Available for all ages
Service Dog Learning
The Service Dog learning program teaches kids about service dogs and their role in the community. We will teach kids about how service dogs are trained, the large impact they make on people’s lives, and show them service dogs in action through volunteer work with the ‘Guide Dog Foundation’.
