The Paws of Life Foundation

The Paws of Life Foundation (PoL) is dedicated to the education of working dog handlers which include search and rescue (SAR) dogs and their handlers. PoL works with agencies at the local level to fund and provide training to working dog handlers and professional volunteer canine handlers. By providing initial and continuing training of the handler, we can help these individuals and their canine partners become a reliable and valuable resource for law enforcement and public safety agencies.

Of Chickens & Dogs

We've started a blog! It takes into account real life situations and the interest in chickens that our Executive Director has developed.

One of the more popular training tools is actually chickens! There are such things as 'Chicken Camp' where trainers can go for a better understanding of behavior modification. Training other species is very helpful as a K9 handler/trainer and chickens is an expansion of increasing training literacy.

We encourage you to check it out and provide comments/feedback on the site.
