Aggie Guide Dogs and Service Dogs, or AGS for short, is open to everyone in the Brazos Valley, though most of our members are current students. Our meetings are every other week on Wednesday and we have Campus Trainings the Monday of that same week.
We have bi-monthly meetings every other Wednesday and host speakers from various organizations to come and talk to us about dogs, services provided by dogs, training methods, and a variety of other subjects. Some of our recent speakers have included the Canine Unit from the Bryan Police, a search and rescue team located in the Brazos Valley, Impact Animal Foundation, and Southeastern Guide Dogs.
There are monthly socials where we get together for a fun activity. This ranges from profit shares at Fudrucker's to ice skating to driving around Santa's Wonderland together to birthday parties for the puppies.
All events are optional, we have both "active" and "non-active" members that attend events. To be active you must earn 12 points during the semester, with most things valued at 1 point apiece. You aren't required to be active, but if you pay dues in the fall and are active, dues are waived in the spring.
If you have any more questions feel free to email us at Aggieguideandservicedogs@gmail.com. We hope to see you at AGS events!
