The sessions provide a safe space for the client to regulate themselves. It is possible for the programme to have specific or more general wellbeing goals.
PAWS for the
A rehabilitation and educational programme. Working with the therapy dog to understand dog behaviours, learn dog handling skills and animal care as well as regulation techniques, life skills and build self esteem. During the programme there is an opportunity to work towards recognised animal handling and life skills certificates. This programme is both practical and theory based.
We also offer an extension to PAWS for the future working with and rehabilitating rescue dogs, by training and socialising them with the new dog handling skills learnt. Once on the extension programme students can become peer mentors for those at the beginning of their P.A.W.S journey.
