Kids Get Paws-itive Reinforcement With Dogs
Alachua County Animal Services has teamed up with the Eastside Community Center Summer Camp in Gainesville to teach kids about how to be a responsible pet owner.
Most kids want them, but then when it comes to actually taking care of a pet, sometimes young ones don't always know how to help out.
Alachua County Animal Services says with a little paws-itive reinforcement that can change.
Today animal services met up with participants in Gainesville's Eastside Summer Camp to teach them about the do's and don'ts of dogs.
It's a public outreach effort that helps kids take better care of their own animals, and learn about responsibility along the way.
