Word Group Therapy Dog In the news: 2020

Therapy dog at Hamilton school proving to be a top teacher
15 Mar, 2019 by Tom Rowland
At 11 weeks old,/ Daisy joined the school two weeks ago/ to be trained/ as a therapy dog,/ and as students enter/ Te Ao Mārama primary school/ in Flagstaff each morning,/ they are greeted/ by a small furry/ spoodle Daisy, the latest member/ of the school's staff.

Deputy headmaster/ Anna Pratt — and Daisy's owner — said she became interested/ in the growing phenomenon/ of therapy dogs being used in schools around the world.

"It is really popular in America,/ and also in Australia," Ms Pratt said. "There were a lot of things we considered,/ such as the breed, the size, the type of coat/ — Daisy has a wool coat/ so she doesn't trigger any allergies./ She has been at school/ now for a couple of weeks,/ and she has been growing/ in confidence and the students/ have been getting more confident around her/ as well."

Daisy, who is a half poodle and half spaniel,/ is identified by the fluoro orange jacket/ that has been specially made for her,/ to show that she is a dog/ in training, and to also make her stand out/ when at school events./

Ms Pratt said that having a therapy dog/ as young as Daisy/ also helps with dog education,/ and the responsibility/ that comes with owning/ a dog.

"I was astounded/ as to how many kids/ here had never touched a dog/, or even seen a dog."
"So many kids come up/ saying I'm really scared of dogs,/ but I really want to pat her/ and now those kids are some of the ones/ who come up first to greet/ Daisy."

Daisy's routine/ includes heading to road patrol/ in the morning and roaming// through the learning areas of the school or teaching spaces./

"Children will read/ to her or draw pictures/ for her in class, and then after that she will eat/ and sleep/ for a bit."

"In research it shows that patting a dog/ releases the feel-good hormones/ and it just helps settles the kids,/ and they don't become distracted."/
