Year 4 – Dogs Trust Visit

Feb 12, 2024PSHE

Today, we had a visit from the Dogs Trust. Rachel told us all about what the Dogs Trust do and how they help dogs in our area. We spoke about the dogs we have in our lives and how we look after them with care and love. Rachel taught us about dogs senses and how these differ from humans. Did you know that dogs’ hearing is four times more powerful than ours? Did you know that a dogs’ sense of smell is five times as powerful?

Rachel taught us about ABC (affection, busy & choice). We must give dogs ABC in an appropriate and safe way to make sure our dogs are well looked after and we keep ourselves safe too. To finish, we wrote our very own ‘best friend promise’ to make to our furry friends!
