Fernie is the most wonderfully calm and laid back chocolate Labrador you might ever meet!

Betsy - Goldendoodle - Oxford
Certified School Dog - June 2016

Betsy attends Fitzwaryn Special School in Wantage, Oxfordshire. She spends time both in the classroom relaxing while the children work and working with small groups and individual children. Betsy has worked with pupils from across the school ranging in age from 4 - 19. She particularly excels at encouraging children's communication by responding to their verbal or signed cues and loves showing of her tricks. When at school Betsy is very calm, but out on walks she likes nothing better than whizzing around the fields into the muddy puddles!

Scout - Cockerpoo - Hertfordshire

Scout, a happy cockerpoo, started work as a Trainee Attending School Dog at The Reach Free School in 2013. She supports pupils with reading on a daily basis during ' Reach for a Book' and regularly attends classes. Scout never fails to bring a smile to the faces of pupils, staff and guests; her wagging tail and friendly face are irresistible. She is now (2016) a fully Certified DHK School Dog and loves nothing more than spending time with pupils to learn new tricks or practise ones she mastered as a puppy. Scout loves coming to school and because of that, so do we!
