YOU HAD ME AT HELLO

BIO

The Dog Mentor Programme has built upon the benefits of the human-animal bond by providing children positive experiences with dogs that can help them educationally, developmentally,

emotionally and socially.

Over the past 8 years, implementation of The Dog Mentor Programme in Primary and Secondary schools across the UK has proven to have significant impact on many children’s lives.

These positive impacts follow the premise that improving communication within schools will improve behaviour.

If you are thinking about taking your dog into school and achieving greater outcomes for all of your pupils, you have come to the right place!

The Dog Mentor Programme has been implemented in almost 200 schools in the last two years alone. There are now more than 220 Dog Mentor dogs working in school every day.

THE DOG MENTOR PROGRAMME

Introducing your dog into school

Bringing a dog into your school is a significant commitment which should be carefully understood and planned. At the heart of the safety and success of the programme will be a clear focus on the wellbeing of the dog.

The Dog Mentor Programme will provide the necessary training, guidance and support to embed this programme in your school.

After a full dog assessment and one day course, you and your team will get access to our SharePoint Resources site along with full support from a member of our team for one year. The SharePoint contains parental consent letter templates, pupil exercises, dog training tools and lots more!

In the cost of the course, we supply a full risk assessment for your school, teacher resources, ten Dog Mentor pupil booklets, collar, lead and printed coat for your dog.

A FEW WORDS FROM OUR SCHOOLS

Thank you so much for the session on Thursday. Words cannot express how much I enjoyed it. As a head teacher I participate in lots of training and listen to lots of keynote speakers. I learn lots from those sessions and take away tips but your training was different.

 

I left feeling truly inspired. A feeling I haven’t felt for a long time in education. You opened my eyes to something new and I truly was in awe. I have been talking about it non stop.

 

Not only did you enable me to see Billy’s abilities and strengths but you taught me to see the world through his eyes. You taught me to understand Billy. 

 

I began to look at him as a being and began to understand his behaviour and reactions. I learned to hold his character at the heart of everything.

 

When you took him into Year 1 you created an environment of respect for Billy. I really admire that.  The children behaved so beautifully. In that moment you taught them to take care of him and to respect his needs.
