School Dog - Reggie

School Dog - Reggie 1

Our School Dog, Reggie is a working, therapeutic dog who comes into school usually once per week to support children on an individual or small group basis. His role in school is to:

  • support children to become more confident readers;
  • support children with emotional regulation;
  • improve the motivation of our younger children to become independent with their self-care;
  • motivate children to attend school regularly;
  • teach empathy and interpersonal skills;
  • reduce stress and anxiety.

Please see our Policies section for our Dogs in School Policy; which includes our Working Dog risk assessment.
