Welcome to Agility Angels…
“Where Dogs Teach Kids to Fly!!!”
Agility Angels uses the sport of dog agility to help children and teens diagnosed with Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome develop social skills and self-confidence. We are a 100%
volunteer organization made up of certified therapy dogs and their owners. Each student is paired up with a team consisting of a Coach and trained agility dog. The goal is to encourage the student to engage with the dog as they cheer and instruct their “teammate” through all the obstacles!
The dogs have proven to be “GIFTED” therapists for our kids! They ask only for love and acceptance from our students, and in return, they give them a feeling of accomplishment and confidence!
Our coaches come from all walks of life, from Special
Education teachers to Realtors. The one thing they all have in common is a love of their dogs and an amazing connection to all our students. Each volunteer is cleared through Therapy Dogs International and has spent countless hours of their own time working with our children and learning about Autism and Asperger’s Syndrome. We couldn’t do it without them!
