TCC/Verizon Day – August 11th
TCC came to MacLaren this past Thursday, August 11th, and we couldn't be more grateful! Employees assisted the youth in a variety of activities, from resumé-writing workshops to speech preparation to t-shirt design and kennel cleaning.
TCC employees also constructed a permanent rain shelter that the youth can use for training dogs in Oregon's inclement winter weather. Words cannot express how happy we are that Verizon TCC chose Project POOCH as a beneficiary these past few months. We would like to give a special shout out to Kevin Schrouder, who adopted a POOCH dog in 2013, and without whom this wouldn't have been possible. TCC has enormously impacted Project POOCH for years to come.
A New Dog Trainer at POOCH
Paulina is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer working with youth handlers and basic obedience along with dog behavioral issues. Of her first few weeks at Project POOCH, Paulina says:
"My first few weeks at Project Pooch have been very exciting. Even though I have just started working with the youth, I was impressed with the level of care and enthusiasm they put into working with their dogs. I was very pleasantly surprised to see how much some of the youth already know about dog training and behavior. I hope I can continue to guide the youth in their dog training endeavors and we can achieve great results of happy and well behaved pups!"
