Fairbanks Service Dogs

Students are helping train future service dogs at the Pawsitive Dog Training in Fairbanks. Simon Atkinson and his 7 month old puppy, Charlie, have been together for the past six weeks. Simon has been working with the Wag’ N Train Teen Flyer service dog program to help train dogs for people in need.

The Wag’ N Train program is operated by a nonprofit organization called “The Other Paw Assistance Dogs” (TOPAD) started by Nathan Colling and Betsy Jacobs. They started the nonprofit to help the people of Fairbanks since there were no services of this kind in the area.

Using positive reinforcement and a patient attitude, these youngsters are teaching the next generation of service animals.
