Hello all. We hope everyone has recovered from Halloween, and all your dogs remained happy and healthy.
We have some exciting news for you. As you may know, the Dogs Trust Education Team have six Education and Community Officers that service most of the country. We visit primary schools, libraries and community groups and offer free workshops on responsible dog ownership and safety around dogs. Unfortunately, we cannot reach every school in the country, however three of our ECOs have recently expanded their districts.
Audrey and her education dog Lucy are primarily based in Dublin, however they now plan on visiting schools in Louth, an area that we have never been able to reach before. If you would like Audrey to visit your school, you can email her on [email protected] or phone her on 0861422381
Paul, and his dog Magic cover the midlands, and his district has also expanded. Paul can now visit schools in (most of) Cavan and south Leitrim. If you would like Paul to visit your school, you can email him on [email protected] or phone him on 0879042815
And Dawn, who covers Cork and South West Munster is now able to visit Limerick. Previously Dawn (who is sometimes accompanied by her dog, Odie) could only visit south Limerick but now can visit any interested school in the county. You can email Dawn at [email protected] or phone her on 087 9239221
And finally, our Connacht officer Aoife has also expanded her territory, and now covers most of Clare. If you would like Aoife to visit your school, you can email her at [email protected] or phone her at 086 832 3325
Of course you don’t have to be from Louth, Leitrim, Cavan or Limerick to book us for you school. Check out our website to find your local ECO, and we’d love to come out and visit you.
