Dennis the Dog (Canine Assisted Learning)

Dennis the Dog is part of the Canine Assisted Learning team who visit Hook Infant School to work with children to help them cope with social, emotional and educational development challenges.

The school dog and practitioner teams help to create a calm environment to encourage focus and attention on a specific learning such as maths or writing and help encourage confidence and participation.

Their presence helps to relax the child ensuring they are in a comfortable state of mind and receptive to the challenges for that day.
