Therapy Dogs for Schools
More and more schools and counsellors are contacting us to provide professional training for their dogs, and for themselves.
We are seeing an increase in the use of Therapy dogs in schools and agencies across Victoria.
K9 Support Therapy dogs become a unique part of helping with:
- Kindness towards others
- Lowering of instances of anger
- Lowering anxiety
- And much more
These dogs work with Wellness Coordinators, and Teachers in schools, they come to work each day and become part of the Wellness Team, working with children with anxiety, anger issues, and to help young children with their reading and communication skills.
Dogs offer unconditional love and support. They do not judge. They are known to lower blood pressure and anxiety, giving children the ability to talk.
They give permission for children to just be themselves.
K9 Support offers a range of options for training.
Our dogs are trained as Therapy dogs or Facility dogs.
We provide all training for handlers.
Please call us or send us an email if you are considering a dog in your workplace, and we can discuss the best option for you and your school.
