Dog therapy

Learning about animal care whilst walking, exercising and talking with a team member.

This is fantastic and popular opportunity for mentoring alongside the child/young person. We are lucky to have access to the meadow at Point In View Chapel, Exmouth, where we are free to spend time with one of our dogs in a safe and beautiful environment. We have several dogs who we work with: Masie, Skye, Buffy, Bella, Lolly and Merlin. Each dog has their own personality and offers a different experience to one another. We teach how to look after a dog, safely walk a dog, basic dog training, shop for dog food/toys, arranging vet appointments and more. Our dog therapy sessions are very popular with our most anxious children and have proven to lower their anxiety and enable them to be outside for longer periods of time than they have previously managed.
