School wide Wellness day with visits to individual classrooms. Dogs would meet with groups of 4-5 students at a time. We had 2 therapy dogs visit in November during a similar schedule and are looking for more volunteers for our next sessions. It was hugely successful.
All handlers would be accompanied by a school staff member. Each classroom visit would be approximately 15 minutes and students would approach the dogs in small groups of 4-5 students at a time. We had a lot of success when we had therapy dogs visit in November, which has resulted in more interest from other classrooms. As a result, we would like to host more dogs so that the amount of time the dogs are here is not too long and the dogs do not get too tired.
