Canine Assisted Activities

Our canine assisted activity classes are truly unique. Under 25's with additional needs are welcome to join our canine activitiy classes either with their own dog or they can buddy up with one of our therapy dogs. Canine assisted activity classes are great for building young people confidence with communication and socialising as well as promoting physical abilities such as balence and coordination. Each session we have 6 games for the young people to play with the dogs. Those games are tailored to meet the needs, interests and abilities of the young people attending. For young people who struggle with engagement we even do themed classes relating to their specialist interests including fancy dress class and a mario themed class. 


We currently run two canine assisted activities classes per week:

> Thursdays at 5.30pm at Dunkirk and Lenton Community Centre

> Saturdays at 11.30am at Southwell Scout Hut
