PAWS of CNY volunteers Kathy Reynolds and Jessica Marabella had an opportunity to give a presentation to a team of Girl Scouts in Cortland about the benefits of pet therapy. The volunteers discussed the mission and focus of PAWS of CNY, including what a therapy dog does, where they go, what type of work they do, as well as the certification process.
Kathy and her dog Sadie demonstrated the basic obedience skills required to pass the evaluation test, such as sit, down, stay, come, and leave it. After the presentation the girls got some cuddle time with the dog, which they loved. It was a fun and informative visit for the girl scouts and the volunteers.
