Tots and Pups is our inclusive parent and child group. These sessions are suitable for all under 5's. We also have a couple of junior mentors who are older children that attend the session to help guide and support the little ones. Tots and Pups sessions are ofcourse dog focused. We have a couple of therapy dogs that attend the session to allow the children the opportunity to interact and play with dogs in a controlled and educational way which will help promote positive and safe interactions with dogs as the children grow up. We start each session with a short dog themed story followed by free play where there is a selection of sensory toys avalible and the children can also interact with dogs during this time. Towards the end of the session their will be some semi structured activities with the dogs which will be tailored to the ages and abilities of those attending.
Tots and Pups sessions are the last Tuesday of each month at 10.30am at Disability Direct Nottingham, Old Basford, NG6 0QG and cost £2 per child. You don't need to book - just turn up! Please don't bring your dog to these sessions.
