Emmet, our Educational Assistance Dog

DHK-Dogs Helping Kids logo

We have a mini-labradoodle called Emmet, who is trained to be become an Educational Assistance Dog. Emmet completed his first two years of training with the charity DHK (Dogs Helping Kids) before their closure in August 2020. http://www.dogshelpingkids.co.uk/

Please click below for more information about our journey ahead. There will also be regular updates on the school blog about Emmet’s progress.

Update September 2020

Emmet passed his first two assessments with the charity Dogs Helping Kids to carry on his journey to become a certified Educational Assistance Dog. As the charity closed in August 2020, Emmet will continue his training with a local trainer. He will work with children as part of his programme.
