Our Dog Mentor

Betty has recently joined us in school and has already passed her bronze and silver assessments. She will be working towards her gold certificate, with the help of the children, and is already a great asset and support to us all.


Why do we have a dog in school?

To work with children and staff within the school to create a positive impact.  By working alongside the dog and learning how to become a good trainer,  both staff and children experience the values and techniques that help develop:

  • Communication

  • Self control and confidence

  • Discipline and Resilience

  • Empathy and Relationships

  • Focus and Concentration

  • Stress Coping Strategies
