Use the resources in the Activity Guide to extend the learning experience in the classroom, for informal workshops or at home. This guide is appropriate for students in grades K–8 and most useful when used as a companion to the film, but also valuable as a resource on its own. Activities developed for this guide support Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Educators are encouraged to adapt activities included in this guide to support unique state or national standards and the needs of their students.
Use this tool as a companion to the activity guide for suggested reading and links to information about dog health, diversity, training, careers and much more.

NExt Generation SCience Standards (NGSS)
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) are K–12 science content standards. Standards set the expectations for what students should know and be able to do. The NGSS were developed by states to improve science education for all students.
A goal for developing the NGSS was to create a set of research-based, up-to-date K–12 science standards. These standards give local educators the flexibility to design classroom learning experiences that stimulate students’ interests in science and prepares them for college, careers, and citizenship.
