Care for Dogs visiting schools
Care for Dogs educational team can make class visits to schools. The lessons are interactive and length of the lessons are usually about one hour. Often we bring along our resident dog who is calm natured and loving and patient with children.
Our brightest star throughout these years has been Judy Black, with her loving nature and wonderful personality, enjoying the attention from the children and giving them happy kisses in the classroom.
We talk shortly about dogs in general, about street dogs and the work Care for Dogs is doing, and include activities like songs to our lessons. The lessons are tailored to the age group and understanding level of the children.
With more grown-up students we can talk about f.ex. career opportunities and more difficult animal welfare questions, sterilizations, responsible pet ownership etc. We always want to include a section of how to approach a dog and how to be safe with dogs.
Would your school like to get involved? Contact us and talk about how we can work with you. We would be pleased to discuss your requirements and we can tailor our lessons to fit any age group or English level. We are also more than happy to help interested teachers with educational materials.
Do you want to become involved with this project? We need volunteers and if you would like to help with this program or any other Care for Dogs activities, please get in touch. We would also like to establish programs for Thai schools and would need volunteers to help us out with the material translations and to visit the schools and communities.
