The four week course of Canine Assisted Learning is proving popular with St Paul’s students as they were introduced to their dogs and begin discussions on resilience. The connections between students and dogs is very special and has everyone smiling.
Students connect with the animals by completing training and performing challenges such as getting the dogs to run through tunnels and walk in figure 8’s.
Feedback received from the CAL facilitator this morning in regards to the students attending:
“I wanted to send a quick message to say how much we enjoyed having your students here at Ingleside for the CAL session today! All the students engaged really well and seemed to have a lot of fun, hopefully learning a few resilience skills along the way. St Paul’s students are very easy to work with – always very respectful of the volunteers, staff and dogs!!”
