A Day of Dog Art

Dog Art by ICAN Dogs & Pups in Training

Welcome to the world of dog art! Dog art is a ''give back'' ICAN project that is done by our inmate dog handlers. Each year we do a day of dog art at the correctional facilities where our training program takes place. More than 300 paintings are done each year and are then sold to benefit ICAN.

Painted by our dogs or pups in training, along with the guidance of their handler, the dogs use their tails, noses, ears, heads and paws, to create a unique piece of art! It is a fun activity for both the dog and the handler. It creates team work among each other, and is also a meaningful project knowing that these pieces will help support their training program. On the back of each canvas, the name of the dog is written on the frame and there is a signature paw print by the dog along with the photo of the handler and dog.

If you are interested in helping us underwrite the cost of canvasses, paint and supplies, please contact dino@icandog.org or call 317-672-3864.
