Hi my name is Audrey and I am an Education and Community Officer for the Dublin and Eastern area. I am a qualified secondary teacher and am looking forward to promoting dog welfare in our primary and secondary schools. By supporting and educating the next generation of dog owners we will hopefully help them to understand the responsibilities of owning their own dog, and hopefully over time decrease the amount of abandoned and stray dogs. I cover Dublin and parts of Kildare, Meath and Louth. The workshops are FREE to schools and are fun, interactive and child centered, some of our topics include Dog’s Needs, Cost of a Dog and Safety around Dogs. If you are passionate about animal welfare and would like to promote the Dogs Trust message in your school then why not get in touch and book your free workshop. I would love to hear from you.

Hi, my name is Paul and I’m the Midlands Education and Community Officer. Before joining the Education team I previously worked in Dogs Trust as a Canine Carer, and although I miss seeing the dogs in the centre every day, I love that I get to travel the Midlands (And occasionally my lovely lurcher, Magic comes with me). We offer free educational workshops to schools (both primary and secondary) and community groups in Westmeath, Longford, Offaly, Cavan and Laois, as well as parts of Kildare, Meath, Monaghan and Leitrim with the aim of passing on the message of Responsible Dog Ownership. It is Dogs Trust's hope that these workshops will reduce the amount of strays, and improve dog welfare as a whole in Ireland. If you would like a visit get in touch today!

Hi, I'm Fiona and I am the Dogs Trust Education and Community Manager. Although Audrey is your main port of call for Dublin Workshops, occasionally I will also visit schools (both primary and secondary) and community centres in Dublin and the Eastern area of Ireland with my trusty sidekick, Ollie the Boxer (when he is up to it of course 😊). The Education team have been running workshops since 2005 and we feel Education is the key to help the future generations of Ireland understand the importance of responsible dog ownership. This not only will allow children to learn how expensive it is to get a dog, but it will also teach the importance of empathy. We also teach that dogs are a lot of work, and of course they are for life not just for Christmas. All of our workshops are free and age appropriate. We have multiple lessons so we can come back time and time again and build on what we have learnt before. If you would like to get in touch, please click the “book a workshop now” button.
