DHK Trainee School Dogs


Logan - Alaskan Malamute
Trainee School Dog

Business sponsor: Integrated Geochemical Interpretation Ltd, Bideford, Devon - view website

Logan is such a lovely boy. A real softy who loves meeting people and will do anything for a good belly rub! He is an intelligent lad and loves to learn new things. His eyes light up when I get the clicker out and when he learns a new trick, he can't wait to show anyone who will watch. In his spare time Logan enjoys Rally Obedience and we've also started doing some sled dog activities like backpacking and scootering. Logan is really enjoying the DHK training.

Dudley - Labradoodle
Trainee School Dog

Hannah, proudly talks of her dog, "Dudley attended Tracey's puppy and advanced puppy training. He is the Nephew of school dog Teazel and brother to Pepsi who is also on the DHK training program.
He is enthusiastic and keen to learn new things. He loves life and people of all ages. He enjoys playing ball, learning agility and running on the beach. He also loves a cuddle and having his tummy tickled by my daughters.
It would be great if he could become a School Dog and raise awareness of DHK and the work of the charity in the Holsworthy area of North Devon."

Frazzle - Labradoodle
Trainee School Dog

Russell, Frazzle's owner, speaks fondly of him - 'Frazzle is an extremely happy, gentle giant who loves nothing more than chilling out with the family, where he squeezes himself up against the sofa. He has boundless amounts of energy and loves coming cycling with the family or doing agility in the back field. He uses his bounciness to clear hurdles of 130cm and has recently started learning to skip.
I took Frazzle to puppy classes and advanced puppy classes and then found out about DHK. As a teacher I love the thought that I could take Frazzle to work and I am keen for Frazzle to join me as a school dog and maybe help children to enjoy school and learning in a different way. He loves people (a lot) and will greet you with a waggy tail and a present when you visit.'

Teddy - Cocker Spaniel
Trainee Affiliate School Dog - Blackpool

Teddy is a Golden Cocker Spaniel who loves everybody; children, grown-ups and other doggy friends! He loves walking in the park and especially on the beach. Teddy accompanies his owner, Andrea, to work at St John Vianney Primary School, Blackpool, for two days a week, where he sits on his blanket in class while the children have their phonics lesson. He then lets children who have been extra good take him out for a little walk and practices some recall for a few tasty treats. Teddy then helps a small group of children who have difficulties with elements of their speech. He gives them lots of ideas to talk about and they have even learnt to sing a little song about him. The children are helping Teddy to practice his clever tricks and they are getting really good at giving nice clear commands and hand signals for Teddy to respond to. A lovely stroke and cuddle finishes off the session. Teddy is also learning to listen to stories and enjoys all the strokes he gets while doing so! Teddy has a lovely nature and enjoys any kind of attention including cuddles, belly rubbing, ear scratching and lots of fun games. He has become a valued member of the family at home and at school.

I am doing the DHK School Dog Affiliate Training with Teddy because I believe that children benefit greatly from contact with animals and learn to be caring and compassionate towards them. I hope that the children who work with Teddy will grow up as animals lovers and good pet owners, who are responsible and loving.

Stanley - Sprocker
Trainee Affiliate School Dog - Chepstow, Wales

Emma, Stanley's proud owner, says, "I have been around dogs all my life and I could not imagine being without the special bond between dogs and humans. When Stanley came into my life at 2 years old I made it my mission, as he had no training and was experiencing behavioural problems to try my best at giving him a life he deserved. I have had Stanley nearly 3 years now and he has made so much progress. He has a good understanding of obedience, has competed in agility and has been assessed as a Pets as Therapy dog. It is in his role as a PAT dog that he came into work with me to visit the more vulnerable and ADHD lads. I work in a prison, with 300 young male offenders. The visits were greatly accepted by the lads but due to circumstances they were not long lasting. Stan is great fun, he has a cheeky personality and likes to be around people. He makes me smile all the time and we play many games together his favourite being 'fetch the ball' or 'find it'. I found out about Tracey and the work she does with kids and dogs through an article in a dog magazine which led onto numerous talks to try and get something started in the prison where I work. Unfortunately the prison visits have been put on hold while the company goes through restructuring, however I have decided to attend a training course with Stanley so he can become a fully fleged 'Dogs Helping Kids' buddy. I believe he will be successful in the areas of 'reward canine' as he is so much fun to interact with.

Kizzy - Golden Retriever
Trainee Affiliate School Dog - Colwyn Bay, Wales

Kizzy is such a lovable 'peoples' dog! She has bounds of energy, a playful nature and a sprinkling of mischief! She is an incredibly sociable dog and loves her walks on the beach, stopping to say hello to EVERYONE. She definitely has the retriever trait in her of being 'lead by her stomach' and loves to master new tricks for tasty treats and then show them off to an audience. She loves all fuss and will sit for hours when tummy tickling, cuddles or stroking of any kind is on offer! I'm sure that due to her soppy, yet playful nature, Kizzy will make a wonderful School Dog.

Type

Kizzy works at Ysgol Eirias (Eirias High School), Colwyn Bay, Clwyd, Wales
