Education Talks

Child education talks for school or clubs

77% of dog bites occur within the home by the family's dog, or by a dog known to the family.


One of the reasons I became a Kids Around Dogs Approved Trainer is because I want to spark curiosity, increase awareness, and improve child-dog interactions for the benefit of all.

Aimed at children aged 4-16, this is a unique service designed especially for children. Talks can run for up to two  hours and involve opportunities to be creative whilst providing a non-judgemental space for learning.

This is also available for primary schools as part of a critical requirement for active bite prevention awareness - something that is not spoken about enough within education settings. This is more important than ever before following the predicted behavioural issues pandemic puppies will display as adults.


Rather than bring a real dog onto your premises, I have my stuffed stooge, Doug the Dalmatian, to help demonstrate how to safely approach and interact with a dog. I also provide handouts with activities for your pupils to do at home, information for parents and caregivers to recap each topic, alongside ideas for child-dog activities at home.
