Companion Dog Scheme

Benji is our Animal Assisted Therapy Dog, The Companion Dog Scheme provides opportunities for children to learn how to respond to a dog safely, how to care for a dog, how to “read” a dog’s feelings and the commitment and equipment needed in owning a dog.  They can explore their understanding of feelings and emotions and build skills through working with and alongside the dog.  The materials from the Kennel Club” Safe and Sound Scheme” and the Dogs Trust “Be Dog Smart,” can be utilised for children for whom they are appropriate.  This programme is certificated.
