Canine assisted activities sessions offer a huge variety of activities and games with dogs with a theraputic purpose.
Our canine assisted activities visits are avalible to any organisation that supports young people with disabilities or who are recovering from trauma this includes, but isn't limited too:
All qualified therapy dog handlers have a standard DBS check and have gone through our set training program. Each therapy dog partnership are supervised for atleast their first three canine assisted therapy sessions. All therapy dogs are flea and worm treated, fully vaccinated and not fed raw meat or unpasturised milk.
Our therapy dog partnerships are trained to provide a variety of canine assisted activities to support individuals with a disability or who are recovering from trauma. These exercises can be tailored to a variety of needs including working on physical skills, support with literacy and numeracy and much more BUT exercises can also just be about having fun and cheering up the young person. We can run visits with several individuals in a row during a single visit. These type of visits are avalible to everyone but generally best suited to hospitals, hospices and libraries.
Our therapy dog visits to groups can be tailored to the needs of the groups. Visits to groups can involve multiple therapy dogs if required. CAA visits are best suited to supporting social skills, team work, emotional support and supporting physical difficulties. These type of visits are generally best suited to young groups and schools. We can combine group and individual visit canine assisted activities into one visit.
