Canines for Recovery meeting!

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

Join us for a NEW Canines for Recovery meeting:

February 18, 2023 @ 11am

The Community Hub

9 Church Street, Bernardsville.

Bring your pup to the Community Hub where we will  be hosting a recovery support  meeting for dogs and their humans.

We will celebrate our best friends and the therapeutic value they have in our lives.  As we live by guiding principles such as courage, humility and service we must marvel at how our best friends have been doing it this whole time.

Humans should be well trained and respond to life on life’s terms. A cheery disposition is a must,  as we guarantee this meeting will be full of tail wags and the occasional barking cross talk.

No dog? No problem! Throw yourself a bone and show up anyway!

All breeds and sizes welcome, but must be well socialized and leashed at all times. Please bring your own lawn chair or blanket.  Light snacks, beverages and doggy biscuits will be provided.

Who said the dog days are over? They’re just beginning.

Horses for a Healthy Lifestyle

The Program:

Horses for a Healthy Lifestyle (HHL), a component our Community in Connection, programming is an equine interaction program in partnership with Mane Stream of Oldwick, NJ. This free program gives participants the opportunity to relate to each other while partnering with horses in a safe and natural environment under the guidance of EAGALA certified professionals.

The Benefits:

Throughout the HHL experience, participants will begin to rebuild an alliance of trust, while learning new skills and improving overall wellbeing. The connection made between participants and the horses is a powerful experience that enhances self-awareness and promotes growth. Horses provide a natural way to build trust and give honest feedback regarding personal feelings and emotions that may not otherwise surface.

Mane Stream

83 Old Turnpike Road

Oldwick, NJ 08809

Our group size is currently limited, therefore registration is required.

If you have interest in participating in this or any other of our ‘Community in Connection’ programs, please contact Sarah for additional information spopa@communityincrisis.org.

With your help, our side yard will transform into a place of calm and tranquility where our community is invited to relax, unwind, and reconnect, surrounded by the beauty of nature.

Whether you are a green thumb, or are all thumbs, we would love to welcome you to this project. We will sweat a little, laugh a lot and get down to earth for a common goal.
