Today, Doug the Pug Therapy Dog was ready for a challenge!
At a conference this afternoon, we were asked “Does bringing an animal into the classroom have any therapeutic affect?”
That was a very silly question to ask Doug the Pug Therapy Dog!
The Emerging Innovations Conference, in Oxford, was entitled “Improving mental well-being and behaviour in children and families”.
It was organised by the wonderful charity “One-Eighty” whose vision it is to have a world where every child can enjoy a positive and flourishing relationship with themselves, their family and their education.
What a perfect vision. Doug the Pug Therapy Dog would so love that too.
We loved being with like minded people, invested in the human animal bond, and were a little in awe of our very discerning audience made up of clever sausage mental health and education professionals! We do so love a sausage.
