Most of them have a very hard history and have been diagnosed with depression or other mental illness.A supervisorof Echo Glen, Jo Simpson modeled this eight-week program course, and takes ten students at time to provide intensive training in dog handling and grooming. One advantage of this program is about theskills that the kids acquire to be use in the outside world. Beside of that, they also learn how to care and how to be responsible. They could see positive changes that they can make in their ownlives.
