What is Save A Dog & Kids Program about?
PAWSITIVE PRAISE FOR
Were you aware that
donations for Charity and Youth Programs in 2002/2003 are so low that not only
food, clothes and necessities are needed, but all After School Programs
for Homeless and Under-priviledged kids have been cut. Federal
research on Anti-gang, Anti-drugs, Anti-violence and Anti-juvenile
delinquency states that the most successful deterants are After School
Programs with positive activities for kids. Kids commit most of the
crimes during the hours after school. Help us bring positive
activities to the underpriviledged kids Youth Programs,YMCA After School
Programs, Youth Detention Centers and other
youth facilities all over the US.
A HUMANE EDUCATION TODAY,
YIELDS A MORE COMPASSIONATE SOCIETY TOMORROW
In our program
kids learn compassion, responsibility and service through helping train
and care for homeless puppies. They learn the benefits of positive
praise and the rewarding satisfaction of training a helpless puppy.
They gain confidence, self esteem and many more values that will help them
in their lives. What a perfect match: Kids and Dogs!

kids have been invited to perform for the Granite District Detention

come visit their kids, and Youth Corrections and YMCA Homeless kids
after-school programs in SLC also wants us to
bring dog training to their kids. The only way to be able to do
all this is if we either get a grant or have a Fundraiser Benefit to
raise money for the kids. Anyone out there have any suggestions,
please let us know.

Canyon: A great place to hike with your dog
is accessed from I-215 at 3600 South. A small fee is assessed
upon leaving the canyon. The gates accessing the upper parking
lot at the top for vehicles usually opens the first, or first
part of July. From the fee station to the upper parking area is
approximately 8.5 miles and 2600 vertical feet.
This is a popular
place to hike with dogs, since the neighboring canyons are
watersheds, and off-limits to dogs. Dogs in Mill Creek Canyon's
undeveloped areas are to be “physically restrained by their
owners”, (On Leash), “on even-numbered days -- but allowed
to roam free, (Off Leash), on odd-numbered days year-round.”
attracts a lot of different users throughout the year. (Hikers,
with and without dogs, Bicyclists, skiers, etc.) So please be
respectful of them all and use common courtesy. There has been a
great deal of controversy regarding dogs in this canyon. It is
one of the last places we can go with our dogs off-leash. Let’s
not lose this privilege.
Dog Lake is one
of the most popular hikes to do with your dog in Millcreek
Canyon. It starts from the southwest corner of the upper parking
lot via the Big Water Trail and heads West. You will climb some
switchbacks through tall trees and then cross a small bridge
built by the Boy Scouts. From here continue up the trail and
follow the signs to Dog Lake. You will have spectacular scenery
along the way.
This is not a
difficult or technical hike. However, your dog will be so happy
once you reach Dog Lake you will need to spend some time there.
So it might be nice to pack a picnic to take with you. (Just
remember to pack out all your and your dogs’ trash.)
