Since 2003, we’ve been working within schools across Britain to deliver educational programmes and encourage positive attitudes and safe behaviours towards dogs.

With nearly 9 million dogs in the UK, children will develop an important and necessary understanding of safe and considerate behaviour around the dogs they know and live with, and those they may see out and about in the community. 

As well as workshops, we also provide free curriculum-linked teaching resources which bring dog-themed learning to life.  

Discover our workshops and resources for each Key Stage.


Our school workshops focus on the theme of staying safe around dogs, and our supplementary resources help cover topics such as responsible dog ownership and building confidence around dogs.  

Our workshops are closely linked to the National Curriculum, are inclusive and are designed with a variety of learning needs and styles in mind. Our workshops are delivered in person.  

Find out more about our workshops on our dedicated learning site, Learn with Dogs Trust.


Our suite of free resources will provide an engaging and memorable learning experience with fun dog-themed content.  

Our resources can be used with pupils between the ages of four and 16 and can be downloaded according to each Key Stage.  

Guest lectures with behaviour experts

Our canine behaviour experts use science-led behaviour knowledge to support Further and Higher education providers to improve their students’ understanding of dogs.  

We can deliver engaging and interactive guest lectures in person or online throughout the year.

School Dogs  

We know just how positive an impact the human-dog bond can have, making each day happier and more complete.

Our guide to the use of school dogs can be downloaded from our Learn with Dogs trust site to help facilitate the human-dog relationship within a school environment so that all parties involved feel relaxed and safe.
