BENEFITING: EAU CLAIRE EVENTS INC
EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016
BARC (Behavioral Applications Regarding Canines) is an internship program through the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Psychology Department. We have a team of eight students, under the supervision of Dr. Carla Lagorio. We work with the dogs at the Eau Claire Humane Association using behavioral training techniques to increase desirable behaviors/skills and decrease problematic behaviors. Our main goal is to increase the dogs' adoptability potential. We train each dog sit, down, stay, and come. However, each dog has special needs we address, such as walking behavior, jumping or barking behavior, and other commands such as gentle, give, and crawl for dogs that have the basics. We work hard and love what we do! The dogs love getting the attention and training and their future owners love getting a well-behaved dog! Please help our organization reach our goal of $500 to put towards supplies we need at the Humane Association! I will be running the half marathon on behalf of BARC, because BARC is an amazing program that helps the dogs in shelters find homes and get some extra love they deserve!
