We are pleased to welcome Ruby & Tay, our reading dogs to Wavendon Gate School.
Ruby & Tay are both Border Collies and are qualified Canine Concern Therapy dogs owned by Mrs Kok, our behaviour mentor. Tay comes into school every Monday and Ruby every Wednesday. They both sit with the children, supporting reading in groups. Research has illustrated that this can assist with confidence and well-being.
Ruby & Tay are fully trained, insured and covered by health and safety standards. Please click here http://www.canineconcern.co.uk/ for more information.
We love this true story about Google the Reading Dog by Sandy Childs. Sadly Google is no longer alive but he has been immortalised in this moving story!
