The Dogs Trust Education Team have been delivering free educational workshops and assemblies across the UK since 2003. Educating children about responsible dog ownership and safety around dogs is an important part of what we do at Dogs Trust.
By helping young people learn about the responsibilities and commitment involved in dog ownership, we believe we can improve the welfare of dogs, both in the homes of the children we teach, as well as dogs they may meet when out and about in the community.
Using dogs as a focus, our lessons and assemblies develop empathy, compassion and consideration for all living beings.
Our aim is to ensure all dogs can lead a happy, healthy life and encouraging and developing the required human behaviour to achieve this is of fundamental importance to the Dogs Trust mission.
