Lake Erie Assistance Dogs is hosting two events in February. LEAD is an assistance dog club modeled after the Assistance Dog Club of Puget Sound.
On Saturday, February 13th, from 2:00 - 4:00 we are conducting a free Introduction to Service Dogs Workshop covering the ADA and state SD laws, types of Service Dogs, public access and task training as well as training options.
Then, on Saturday, February 27th from 2:00 - 4:00 we are having our first club meeting. Sue Alexander, well-known service dog trainer from Guelph, Ontario, Canada will be our guest speaker and we will also discuss our plans, goals and mission. Sue has also volunteered to do some public access testing for anyone interested (although due to time and resources constraints, we won't be doing a complete public access test). Both events will be held at Canine Affair Center, 8495 Mulberry Rd, Chesterland, OH 44026.
Is there anyone among my readers who will be attending either or both of these events who would like to be a guest poster on Service Dogs: A Way of Life about these events? Email me at servicedogsawayoflife[at]gmail.com. I will do all the work to format and the article if you will provide the photos and words about your experience and you will get credit.
