The Dogs Connect program has been implemented in several schools across regional Victoria.
The program is available in a variety of packages to meet the specific needs of school communities.
The Full-Scale program involves the Dogs Connect team building a dog into the school’s teaching and learning practices to help develop social and emotional skills for students and staff. We carefully source, train and integrate the dog to become a permanent member of the school community.
Duration: 2 terms

The Enrichment Program involves the Dogs Connect team working with a dog that is already part of your learning community. The program involves working with and teaching the school community how to build and deeply embed social and emotional learning and identifying ways to ensure the school dog is supported and sustained as an integral part of the teaching and learning culture of your school.
Duration: 2 terms
