About our workshops

We have a huge variety of fun, engaging and interactive workshops delivered by our dedicated team of Education and Community Officers.

Every year we visit hundreds of schools and work with thousands of young people encouraging their personal development and supporting the curriculum. Our trained and experienced team is fully equipped to deliver engaging and interactive lessons to your class, with minimal assistance required from you. Safety is naturally embedded in all of our workshops, but we also have Be Dog Smart workshops which further teach young people how to behave around dogs to keep themselves safe. 

Don't forget, some of our Officers can also bring their own dog to meet you and your pupils for a truly unique interactive workshop experience.
