Creating lifelong learners through wellbeing, awareness, and connection.
Working with Dogs Connect improves connectedness within your school community. We support you in bringing a dog into your school community to improve the learning journey and culture of your school.
We work with you towards having your own school dog from the early stages, through to using a dog as a teaching facilitator, and education enhancement tool.
The work we undertake calls on unique experience, research, practice, and brings amazing results. It builds stronger connections, enhances academic outcomes, social success, and learning in all areas.
Dogs Connect provides expert guidance throughout this process, from the concept planning stages, through to complete implementation of innovative change in your school.
USING DOGS TO IMPROVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES
Dogs and mankind have shared friendship and working relationships throughout history. Evidence supports the notion that dogs have positive impacts on children’s school experience on a wide variety of levels (Anderson & Olson, 2006). Grant has discovered and become passionate about this through research and experience.
