Business Helps Young Adults with Disabilities, While Pleasing Area's Dogs

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Bow Wow Bones dog treats, made with natural ingredients, pleases pets while benefiting young adults with developmental disabilities.
Chris Anders, 26, of Hampton Falls; Chelsea Brown, 22, of North Hampton; Michael Clayburgh, 21, of Portsmouth; and Kelsey Splaine, 21, of Rye, are all participants of The Friends Project, an organization that provides social and recreational opportunities. And now they have created their own small business, Bow Wow Bones.
"Our plan is to make this a big business, where the disabled young adults are involved in it," said Michael's mother, Nancy Novelline Clayburgh. "It's really a good experience for them. It's teaching them how to be responsible for portions of running a business."
