Schools Workshop Programme

We offer FREE interactive workshops for 7-11 year olds in schools and youth groups/clubs.


"An excellent workshop very child friendly, main points emphasised very clearly, children responsive" Saints and Scholars Integrated Primary School

"A most enjoyable addition to the curriculum, very thought provoking" Our Lady Queen of Peace Primary School


Covering London and surrounding areas, South Wales, Glasgow, Northern Ireland, the Midlands, the North East and North West regions of the UK, the Education Officers use the theme of dog ownership as a means to help pupils develop self-esteem, confidence, responsibility, communication and teamwork skills.

The workshops encourage young people to explore problems of irresponsible dog ownership as part of our aim to reduce the number of stray and abandoned dogs in key areas of the UK, that have been identified as having a high stray dog population and destruction rate.

The workshops are designed to be flexible and our education officers do as much as they can to meet your schools requirements. The education officers have a range of activities they can use with pupils and are more than happy to discuss and plan the workshop with you in advance.


Cathy Clyde – Education Officer for Northern Ireland:

“Prior to taking up my post with Dogs Trust I was an English teacher, so I have successfully combined my teaching skills with my love of all things canine. All my free time is spent with my 'family' of rescue dogs who enjoy training classes and agility games. George, a rescued Bichon, has even performed at Discover Dogs and accompanies me on my school visits, where he always is the star of the show!”
