Click on the link below for a recent BBC Education article which supports our aims for schools:
Animal assisted education means using therapy dogs to discuss emotional wellness and why dogs are so useful. Give students access to a therapy dog to encourage them into the classroom, to engage with lessons and their peers.
Our dogs love listening to children read, help encourage reluctant school goers into the classroom and having fun in assembly.
Fendi, the 5 months old German Shepherd and her friend Katie spent the morning at Avanti Trust School in Frome.
The school was brilliant. During assembly they let me talk to all the children about rules around the dogs and what’s expected . I brought my van on to the school grounds so they could go and have breaks and tripe stick and a rest,it was perfect. One parent had tears in his eyes when he saw his child wasn’t frightened of dogs any more. And Katie fell asleep next to a “Looked after child”, who managed a week in class with the help of her new little friend.
