The co-founders of Clever Canines Therapy & Obedience Club do not keep proceeds generated from our obedience classes for our personal gain. All income from teaching obedience classes is used to cover basic expenses and in support of animal and community related organizations and causes. We have recently donated to the Hopewell Humane Society. We have also donated Pet Oxygen Recovery Masks to several local fire departments. Consider making a donation of a mask set in honor of your four legged friend!
