Stoking, grooming and talking with animals can be very healing. We also work with students who have animal phobias. We have our own dog and also have regular visits from Paul and his dogs. We access equine therapeutic work regularly. We have a great relationship with a reptile specialist who visits every year with a full range! In addition students can take Action Awards and some diploma level studies in dog care and behaviour, cattery management, and equine studies. We recently took part in the PDSA schools award. We let students bring in their animals for visits after risk assessment has been completed. 

Adam, our therapy dog visits two days a week. 

Adam works under a strict contract which ensures his well-being and that of the students. Please download the Big Bear Bespoke Education Ltd information sheet for your school or society if you are thinking of employing a therapy dog!
