LCK9TC loves to visit local schools and spend time with children. We always bring one or two dogs with us and let the kids get to know them as they learn. We talk to them about what we do with the dogs who come to us for training, good safety rules to follow around dogs, and much more! The kids always ask lots of questions and we have a blast interacting with them.
