Afterschool ‘All About Dogs’ class visits the vet

By Susan Harris
Afterschool Director

Students in the “All About Dogs” afterschool class are crazy about canines, and last month they visited a local veterinarian’s office.  It was a high point for these children who had spent semester learning about canine behavior, different breeds and appropriate human behavior around dogs.  The photos speak for themselves!

During the semester, a different dog and their owner would ride the elevator once a week to the third floor where a group of Lower School students eagerly awaited their arrival in the 6-7s room. Children gave verbal commands to the dogs, walked them on a leash, watched a doggie/owner dance routine, and observed a grooming session and brushed dogs’ fur – and teeth!

We thank Connie Formosa, class teacher, dog trainer and groomer, for sharing her knowledge and of love of dogs with MCS kids.
