Service Dog Awareness Education
Paws Then Play
Paws Then Play LLC is based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Our vision is to educate and serve those who are disabled and need help to navigate the world with their service dog. We educate businesses on their rights and responsibilities with handicapped persons and their service dogs.
My name is Lindsay Brown, and I have experiences that make me uniquely suited for the business I created. I have intensive training with animals including conditioning my own service dog, managing my own disabilities daily, researching laws specific to service animals.
I love animals and have worked in different fields of dog training and also with horses. I have also worked my own dogs at shows and teach others about training, service dog legal issues, and how to manage disabilies in daily life with the assistance of a service dog.
How Can Paws Then Play Help You?
Having a Service Dog is both a right and a responsibility. For those who use Service Dogs, Lindsay makes sure the same is true: that each individual understands what accommodations they should and should not expect when in public or in a place of business and what they are accountable for when accompanied by a Service Dog.
Lindsay will walk people through the long process of acquiring or creating a Service Dog and educate them to minimize and hopefully prevent the common pitfalls and stresses that come along with choosing and training a canine companion to mitigate a disability.
Paws Then Play also works with public servants such as firefighters, police officers, and city employees, as well as with agencies and owners of private businesses where Service Dogs are likely to accompany handlers. Through Service Dog Awareness Seminars, Lindsay makes sure everybody clearly understands what is and is not acceptable, polite, legal, and safe to the benefit of all in the community.
Lindsay instructs on how to safely and effectively handle scenarios that will likely occur as Service Dogs are being used to support an increasingly broader spectrum of individuals. I'm disabled and want more information and/or guidance about Service Dogs!
Lindsay will gladly share all of her knowledge with you to help isolate quantifiable aspects aside from emotion to enable you to make a decision with confidence. Connect with Lindsay to find out more details about professional training and one-on-one consultations!
Paws Then Play can help clarify why service dogs are important to their disabled handlers, and when situations need to be addressed for their safety, enjoyment, and well-being. Learn what your rights and responsibilites are as a handicapped person with a service dog.
