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!
