What We Do

As dedicated advocates for personal development, leadership, and philanthropy, we facilitate a dog-centric program designed to engage and inspire teens through the transformative power of dogs.


The journey begins with a two-day retreat workshop infused with activities and instruction introducing them to success principles,leadership, and financial literacy.  Guided by experienced mentors and surrounded by the joyful energy of dogs, teens will begin an empowering journey to “fetch a life they love”.


We help teens “unleash their potential” through the Science of Success.  Over the duration of an 8 weeks, participants will meet once per week and engage in our comprehensive curriculum, crafted to equip teens with the mindset needed to thrive.  Through the lens of dogs, we explore the principles of reliance, determination, effective goal setting, and growth mindset, unlocking the secrets to achieving greatness. Teens will also gain knowledge in financial literacy to be better prepared for life in the “real world”.


We inspire teens to make a difference as they collaborate on a philanthropic projectfor animal welfare. They will learn they can do big things and use newfound skills and passion to make an impact in the world.
