WE ARE Education specialists using dog assisted therapy.
WE PROVIDE A unique and fun approach to education and dog training.
WE STRIVE To provide the most professional and accessible services that connect our clients with certified therapeutic dogs for improved well being and lifelong learning.
We are committed to lifelong learning. We know the value of education. We are all highly qualified in education and/or allied health. Our unique tailored strategies and programs are continually being refined to deliver real outcomes for young people.
Connecting with kids is the key. We know that connection is the key to unlocking and exploring changes in behaviour and opening up opportunities for learning. We have developed and have evidence to show that this different way of working delivers massive returns in mindfulness, using strategies and decreasing overall levels of anxiety.
For learning, you need a safe environment to explore and to be challenged to change and improve. First we find a way to interact and then together we can assess the underlying issues and look at what outcomes we can achieve – together.
Calmer classrooms is the goal. We know that when we can reduce anxiety and increase inclusive behaviours we have calmer classrooms and calmer schools and calmer families. Everyone in the chain benefits from improvements in social skills and a learning environment built on a foundation of new skills.
Why do we do this?
We give people hope. Hope that inclusive schooling and communities can be functional. Hope that we won’t leave kids behind because they are ‘too hard’, because their problems and their behaviour are ‘too hard’. Hope that kids at risk and school refusers have another option and another way to participate.
We offer a wider perspective on what is possible through the use of dogs as a tool for change. Led by a group of people who are highly qualified professionals. We offer a new way of building calmer classrooms and people that is built on known social and curriculum based strategies and outcomes.
We change kids lives. We help them embrace learning through individual and group sessions with a key aim to improve their school life and experience for kids at risk.
Through our programs kids grow in empathy and social skills and learning outcomes. But it’s really about seeing them grow in confidence and learning and life skills to allow them to participate in school and in life.
When we can deliver a student with learning readiness. We are supporting children, teachers, parents and all players to maintain a place for safe and engaged learners.
Don’t wait for the last resort – we know there are benefits in early intervention and the cumulative effect of calmer classrooms.
