Since 2016 we have opened our doors to the special needs community to share in our passion for dogs and the love they give.


Our Mission

Our mission is to create a safe and fun environment for children with special needs to express themselves and communicate through the healing companionship of dogs. 

Our daughter Taylor absolutely LOVED her day as well it was a great day for she and her Dad to spend a great day together. It was put together really well and our daughter really had the best day.
Nick said how much her trainer took time to with her and had patience. You can see the joy her trainer had in the program.
I feel it was such a wonderful opportunity for Taylor

Joshua so enjoyed the Special Pups day and has good memories of it. “Amanda and Jason were really fun and their dog, Ryder, was really nice too!” Thank you for allowing us to be part of this special experience and for so freely giving of your time. You were easy to talk to and were interested in Josh too. It’s people (and dogs) like you who help to make a difference in the lives of others in some way.
