Description

Using a wealth of infographics and classroom examples, Dogs in Schools sets out the pedagogical principles that schools can employ to work with school dogs in a way that promotes the well-being of all participants and creates a safe environment for all. This is the first book to combine theory and research with the views of experienced teachers and professionals working around the world, from the United Kingdom to India, from Australia to mainland Europe.

Their perspectives illustrate the wide-ranging interest in school dogs but also highlight common concerns.

For policymakers, this is a book not to ignore because it shows how dogs have the potential to make a significant contribution to children's well-being at a time of growing concern in this area.

Simultaneously, the authors endorse the views of contributors who call for the introduction of humane regulations and fulsome guidance so that school dogs are viewed as sentient companions and not relegated to the latest educational fad. This is a must-read book for all those who are serious about humane education and ensuring the well-being and happiness of both children and dogs.
