Jane Shannon, Honey's very proud owner says, 'Honey is the newest member of our family and she is so welcome and so adorable. Honey is currently (July) 3 months old and loves learning new things everyday. She loves chasing our other dogs around and chasing the ball.
Honey is attending Southmead Primary School with me and I am introducing her into the school gradually. We are spending quiet time walking around the school and getting her familiar with the setting. The Headteacher, teachers and all the pupils are very excited and happy to welcome Honey to our school. Honey will become a wonderful member of our school team and she is going to bring so much joy and happiness to all who meet her. As Honey's training with me progressess, the children will become more involved with helping train her too. At Southmead we have seen what impact having a DHK School Dog around the school has made. We have been so lucky to have been working with DHK's Certified School Dog Team, Gail and Teazel ( Honey's half sister), for the past year and the experience has been wonderful'.

Betsy - Certified School Dog - Goldendoodle
DHK Puppy in Training - Oxford

Rachel Wenham, Betsy's owner, says, "I have been interested in Animal Assisted Interventions for a number of years and in particular thinking about how to introduce it into the special school which I work in. Having taken part in the SCAS 4 day course, I was given the go ahead to introduce dogs into school. During the process of looking for a suitable dog, I was introduced to Tracey and DHK. I am really excited to be working along a charity who has had so much experience of supporting dogs going into school and who have rigorous assessments to ensure only suitable dogs enter schools. We hope that by having Betsy attending school, we will be able to add an additional element to the curriculum we offer our pupils including amongst other things teaching empathy, improving self-esteem and helping those with fears of dogs."

Fernie - Certified School Dog - Labrador
DHK Puppy in Training - Somerset

From the day he was born, Fernie has seen and met many different people as we wanted him to be as socialised as possible. As a consequence he is phased by nothing and is a very calm dog with a wonderful temperament. His owners, Nik and Lisa wanted to have a dog that could help children, so Fernie will be an attending school dog at Winford C of E Primary School in North Somerset. He has already made a huge impact at school and his calm nature has already worked wonders with some children that had a fear of dogs. He attends most days and is a familiar sight around school. Even now, children's understanding of responsible dog ownership has increased dramatically, and pupils and staff alike love him being in school. Over time, we are very excited about the benefits that a school dog can bring, both academic and emotionally, especially after the training offered by DHK.

Type of School Dog
Fernie is an Attending School Dog and officially certified in May 2016.

Scout - Certified School Dog - Cockerpoo
DHK Puppy in Training - Hertfordshire

Scout is a very happy Cockerpoo named after the lead character from 'To Kill a Mockingbird'. Scout is in training to be an Attending School Dog at the The Reach Free School, which opened in September 2013. Scout really enjoys the company of people and loves nothing more than to be surrounded by lots of human companions. She's also a big fan of other walks of life, especially other dogs who will indulge her in a high-speed game of chase. She is also parital to ducks, cows and butterflies but they do not tend to be so enamoured with her!

The Reach Free School specializes in English and Maths, so Scout's role as a reading dog is integral to the school's curriculum and 'ACE' ethos of Acheivement, Community and Enjoyment. Scout is very much be part of the teaching team at the school and already brings her owner, Natalie, who is the Deputy Headteacher at the school, lots of joy. She is sure to do the same for the pupils of The Reach Free School due to her incredibly friendly nature and her comical personality.
