Cincy Chic: How does Circle Tail help the community?
Kiblinger: Careful selection of puppies and adult dogs from breeder donations, unwanted litters, family releases and area shelters and rescues not only helps disabled persons, but provides purpose to dog’s life. Further, Circle Tail’s partnership with area prisons, in which Circle Tail trainers provide instruction to the inmates in caring for and training the dogs, helps in many ways: it benefits the dogs, the people who will receive the dogs and the inmates who experience the responsibility, rewards and unconditional love that a dog brings. In addition to assistance dog training, Circle Tail offers a variety of training options including group basic, intermediate, remedial and remote collar training, as well as private training lessons and board and train programs. Circle Tail’s certified PetTech® evaluator conducts a PetTech® First Aid Care for your Pets Course, where attendees learn CPR, rescue breathing, injury and wellness assessment, etc.
