Pet Care with Puppypants!

Learn how to be a great pet sister or brother by learning how to care for a pet’s physical and emotional needs, and fun new ways to connect with your furry BFF! Class is a lively, informative and funny discussion and demonstration with question and answer time and sometimes even singing by Mayor Puppypants! Students may send Mayor Puppypants a question before class or a follow up note after class if they wish. Kids don’t need to have their own pet, as this is for anyone who loves animals. Taught by Just Humor Me Founder™️, Humane Educator, & Animal Communicator, Shannon Spring, M.Ed… kids love this class so much, they’re still talking with excitement after the bell rings! Be sure to enroll in our Woofmeowt Animal Helpers Camp, Animal Communication Camp, and Mutts in Motion class too! Bring your pets to class for extra fun!

“This was a FANTASTIC class! Teacher Shannon is so warm and conversational with the kids. My daughter had so much fun learning and she couldn’t wait to share it all with us!  She’s become much more responsible with pet care.”  – Sara G and Lily

“My daughter Julia absolutely loved this class and the teacher. She loves  her fun disposition and her positive energy. It was Ms. Shannon’s lighthearted, funny approach that really captivated Julia’s interest. Julia’s been reluctant about taking classes, being nervous about new people… but when she saw Ms Shannons video, she was all in!”   – Dr. J.

The teacher is really good at explaining things and Mayor Puppypants is awesome! She taught me how to feed my pets the right foods and cool games to play with them. I’d definitely take more classes with Teacher Shannon.”   – Izaiah age 10 via mom, Ginger
