Dogs with Jobs is a winter lecture series, covering many of the roles that dogs play in the modern world.  All proceeds from these presentations will go directly and entirely to the Ottawa Valley Search and Rescue Dog Association, a registered charitable organization.

Service Dogs are trained to perform specific tasks to mitigate training-service-dogsthe impacts of a disability on an individual.   In this presentation by dog trainer Sandra-Marie Hrycko, you will learn about the impact service dogs have on the lives of their handlers, with a particular focus on PTSD Service Dogs. The many tasks service dogs can be asked to perform, what makes a good service dog, as well as the training and certification process for public access will also be discussed.

We are also very pleased to announce that Maj (ret’d) Dee Brasseur, a representative on the Canadian Government Standards Board Committee, currently developing Federal Standards for Service Dogs in Canada, will be present to share some of the background, challenges, current status and future challenges of the Service Dog Standards and Training Industry, as they strive to develop national standards for Service Dogs.

This presentation is for humans only, so please leave your dog at home. We’re hoping for a full house – so bring along a chair, a note pad and all of your questions!
