Certified DHK Attending School Dogs


Fernie - Chocolate Labrador - Somerset
Certified School Dog - May 2016

Fernie is the most wonderfully calm and laid back chocolate Labrador you might ever meet! He attends Winford C of E Primary School daily and goes wherever Headteacher Nik goes, whether it be assembly, reading with children or meetings. He makes a huge impact at school and his calm nature has already worked wonders with some children that had a fear of dogs.

Scout never fails to bring a smile to the faces of pupils, staff and guests; her wagging tail and friendly face are irresistible.

Max - Terrier X Whippet - Yeovil
Certified School Dog - May 2017

Max has to be the calmest, chilled out character. He loves coming to school and is really eager when he sees his orange harness. He comes to school daily with Head teacher, Jo Wardally.
Max goes into class with Jo and loves to chill on his settle mat during lesson observations. He is even part of the interview panel during any recruitment!
Pupils all love spending time with Max and have enjoyed reading with him and training with him. We are currently teaching Max to 'crawl', any excuse for an extra treat!
When the orange harness comes off at the end of the day Max enjoys playing tug and having a good run. As Max is partly whippet he goes like a rocket and as he especially loves a good 'chase' with his doggy pals this comes in handy.
