“I have received a lot of verbal feedback on how wonderful you are as a person; how approachable and passionate you are and how you were able to deliver the workshops to a level the pupils could understand. This is something very few visitors are able to do. Thank you so very much for taking time to visit us.”

“In 14 years as a teacher and 2 years doing home ed, that was by far the best visitor’s session that I’ve seen.”

About Dogs Trust Education Team
At Dogs Trust we offer FREE interactive dog welfare workshops and assemblies that enhance a variety of curriculum subjects.
Responsible Dog Ownership and Dog Safety are the underpinning themes of our programme. One or both these themes feature in all our workshops.
Our interactive workshops are delivered with a great deal of passion, in creative and imaginative ways.
We use a variety of teaching styles to create a memorable, positive learning experience as children discover how to stay safe around dogs. We also discuss the commitment involved in owning a dog. Use of resources such as dog care items, as well as an assortment of other engaging resources, helps to create a differentiated and inclusive learning experience.
Our workshops include as many learning styles as possible, using activities such as drama, discussion, games and group work.
