Dogs in schools programs

Our team is passionate about the benefits of dog assisted support to help children be more relaxed during teaching and learning time through:

School Programs:  Our incusions are delivered to support small groups of young people struggling with connection at school. We have a series of programs that focus on specific needs, however all programs aim to promote a more positive educational learning space within the school. 

Who are the programs for? Our curruculum is designed to successfully engage students P-12 who have a broad spectrum of needs and personalities.  We welcome special needs schools and adapt curriculum to support their needs.

What do we do: Our Animal Assisted Interventions (AAI) dogs team up with our educators to run 8 week programs to a group of 8-10 students for 50 minutes per week (or a flexible version).  Each program has specific learning criteria, workbooks, mindfulness resources and a rigorous evaluation process. 

Where and when are programs held: In consultation with your school, we will find the best time and location to fit with the school and students needs.  We usually require a classroom sized space, where tables can be moved and access to an outside area.  We also require a member of the school staff be present for the sessions.
