Pawsitive Change is a program that teaches people that stereotypes about particular dog breeds are often times incorrect. Its main goal is to break stereotypes and teach people how to properly interact with dogs. Please learn about our different branches of the Pawsitive Change program.
Pawsitive Change: School Edition
Pawsitive Change: Hospital Edition
“Pawsitive Change: School Edition” teaches Elementary School children how to properly train, interact, and care for dogs in their home and how to encounter dogs they do not know when out and about. This program will bring dogs infamously known as “Dominant Breed” dogs into their school for assemblies and interactions to help teach children from a young age that breed typical stereotypes are often times incorrect. We hope that this program will help decrease the amount of dogs that are euthanized in animal shelters due to no fault of their own, but just because they were born the wrong breed of dog.
This program is not currently implemented into Pawsitivity Rescue yet, but we are working towards it every day.
“Pawsitive Change: Hospital Edition” teaches patients and their families that breed typical stereotypes are often times incorrect by bringing dogs infamously known as “Dominant Breed” dogs into the hospitals to interact and visit with the patients and their families. By doing this, we are not only helping to break the stereotypes against “Dominant Breed” dogs and giving necessary human companionship to dogs who were rescued from high kill shelters, but we are also making the hospital patients’ days brighter by bringing in some tail wagging friends for a visit!
