Our Programs

The Little Dog Laughed AAT supports two distinctly different programs:

  • STAR (See, Tag And Reward)  –  active engagement of at-risk youths in carefully structured classes in positive dog training using live therapy dogs.  Sessions are designed and conducted in collaboration with counselors/therapists, and are usually with one child at a time for 20-30 minute sessions.
  •  Be a Tree™ – a dog-safety program for ALL children developed by Doggone Safe, a non-profit organization dedicated to dog bite prevention through education and dog bite victim support.  This is a scripted presentation for groups, and lasts 30-40 minutes. Dogs are present as over-sized photos only.
