Each semester, Marin Humane welcomes a group of students into our Student Service Clubs. These animal-loving students spend the semester learning about Marin Humane become animal advocates through their work. Middle and high school students in the Junior and Senior Roots & Shoots clubs develop a community service project to guide their semester. These clubs are part of the national Roots & Shoots program started by Dr. Jane Goodall.

For this semester’s project, students decided to invite a variety of speakers from different animal-involved organizations to teach us what they do. You can watch new installments of these virtual interviews every week and more from the Student Service Club blog.

Today, we’re joined by Marin Humane’s Director of Behavior & Training, Dawn Kovell. In this interview, Dawn discusses various ways we can support our companion animals during this time. If you have a dog at home (especially a new addition), this video is for you! If you are interested in more resources, see our Behavior & Training page for information regarding training classes and handouts.
