School dogs: how to develop effective interventions that mean wellbeing for all.

There are hundreds of dogs visiting schools across the UK.

This seminar explores the potential benefits for pupils, especially regarding wellbeing, with examples from early years, primary, secondary, FE and special educational sectors.

We highlight practical considerations that need consideration so dogs as well as pupils enjoy these experiences, creating a positive partnership for all. We will discuss strategies to enable safe, happy and engaging relationships between children, dogs and adults.

Helen’s dogs will be on hand to demonstrate how a play-based approach to these interventions can be enriching for all concerned.

Get ready for waggy tails and flying fur!
