We are currently visiting Care Homes, Hospitals, Hospices, Universities, County Courts and Prisons. Recently we have also started visiting companies and even the police and ambulance services, to help with mental health issues and work stress. The feedback we are getting is amazing, with many companies saying their productivity is up and their absenteeism is down. Many companies are organising wellness days when they encourage staff to participate in activities to help their health and wellbeing. When we have been invited to take part in these, the staff have often said it was the best activity.
We are also doing lots of work with children, going to schools and libraries for children to read to the dogs as well as Brownies, Guides, Cubs and Scouts to talk about dog care. We are also working with special needs groups for the sensory aspect as well as several University and National Health Studies for help with dog phobia.
Our read to Dogs programme in schools is expanding and we are very happy to be part of the Kennel Club, Bark & Read and thank them for the support they have given us.
Our visits break down so many barriers in life, giving ease and enjoyment to all.
Eve, our founder always said we reach out to people through our dogs.
