Does your child love dogs?🐾

Or maybe they are cautious around dogs and want to learn more about them?

Our educational Woofing Workshop is designed to teach children all about dogs and staying safe around them!

With our well trained faux dogs attending, this workshop is suitable for children who may be cautious or even allergic to dogs, but love animals and want to learn more about them.

The workshop content is aimed at children aged from 4 years to 10 years old, however, younger or older children are welcome to attend. 

Our 1 hour 30 minute Woofing Workshop will cover:

-How to stay safe around dogs

-Understanding dog language to play safe and communicate

-What dogs need to be happy and healthy

-Dog breeds

Developed by our Enhanced DBS checked and active Further Education Lecturer, the workshop is predominantly based around practical activities to ensure children are having fun whilst they learn! 

Lesson aims:

-To practise how to greet unknown dogs appropriately and practise the safety steps needed if an unknown dog runs over.

-To describe what dogs need in relation to the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare (health, behaviour, companionship, diet, environment). 

-To understand dog body language so they can play and interact safely with family dogs.

-To prevent future breed stereotyping and understand dogs are all individuals, just like humans!
