PAWS- Partnering

Animals with Success

Our PAWS program is co-run by Natalie Montfort, PhD, and Gordon Zentz, who is the founder of the PAWS program.  Using interactions with dogs of various sizes, personalities, and temperaments, students learn how to “read” the signs they’re getting from their “partner” and adjust their behavior accordingly.  Not only do the kids love the opportunity to interact with the animals, but it provides practical, real-time training on the nuances of social skills that are often overlooked in formal social skills training programs.


Who is Eligible to Attend: This group is for children in kindergarten through middle school who have minimal challenging behavior.


Cost: $80 per hour session
