The Michal Sela Canines

The Michal Sela Canines project provides women under high-risk threat of intimate partner violence with life-saving guard dogs. The dog is given to the woman for life, and he lives with her as a family member 24/7. The dog is a life-saving gift that gives the woman quality of life, and physical and emotional security. This is an innovative project and the first of its kind in Israel.

A Michal Sela dog is a lifesaver, a true friend, and beloved family member.

 

Michal Sela Canines save the lives of women under threat of IPV and her children. The dogs enable them to experience quality of life, security, peace of mind, recovery from trauma, bolstered self-confidence, and give the woman a sense of control over her life and the lives of her children.
 

The Michal Sela Forum provides the dogs and the women under threat with professional, tailored training. The dogs and the women are given tailored training. Each dog is carefully selected according to very stringent requirements, and must be very social by nature, mentally stable, and physically fit.

 

The Michal Sela Canines package includes:


•    Acquiring a guard dog for the woman under threat and her children. Each dog is carefully selected to be compatible with the woman and her individual needs and with the stringent requirements. 
•    Intensive professional training for 3 months, tailored to each woman individually. 
•    Dog supplies (crate, harness, collar, ball, and muzzle)
•    Dog pension fund
•    Accompanying research for evaluation and measurement

 

This package is provided for women who do not live with the threatening intimate partner, and in cases with which the police or the welfare department are familiar.
* Women under threat of IPV who are admitted to the project receive a guard dog after 3 months of training at a kennel that specializes in training guard dogs.
