My involvement with Paws & Think began when I volunteered for a Youth Canine program. These programs consist of using dogs from Humane Societies or Animal Care & Control, and matching them up with kids (such as those in detention centers, pregnant teens, etc.) who teach the dogs basic commands. Not only does this make the dogs more "adoptable" but it also teaches the kids how to use positive reinforcement -- while boosting their self-esteem. Watching the bond form between the kids and these dogs is simply magical.
