Presentations in schools and nursery schools are adapted to the age and understanding of the children. We teach the children about the correct, respectful and responsible  way to relate to  dogs, and to all animals (they practise the correct approach together with us).

The children receive information -how to behave towards a dog without an owner and off the lead, how to behave if the owner is present, how a dog “talks” – a dog’s body language, how to protect themselves from a dog showing negative signs, how to stroke and touch a dog, what aids we use, and where a dog can be a companion in work – which professions need dogs, etc.

We talk about animal shelters, and about voluntary work.

We give a live demonstration how we must care for a dog, cleaning his teeth, brushing him, wiping his paws, etc.

Interaction between our trained dogs and the children occurs during at the end of the lesson. This includes showing and teaching  them how the dog’s tricks are performed (give a paw, bring the basket, collect your toys, etc).

In schools with an adapted programme we prepare this presentation lesson together with the school’s professional staff (defectologist, psychologist, speech therapist, etc.) who know best their pupils and their reactions. Each participant has the opportunity to touch the dog, stroke him, carry out the easiest dog’s trick, and offer him a treat.
