Could you and your dog spare a few hours each month to visit a local school to help improve children’s literacy and confidence? We are looking for some very special volunteers.
‘Burns by Your Side’ will give you and your dog the opportunity to become a trained volunteer team. Working alongside your dog, you will visit a local school for a few hours each month.
This valuable service will help children with their reading as well as building confidence and well being with children that have special nurturing needs. You need to be over 18 and have an obedient, gentle and well behaved dog that is more than 18 months old and has lived with you for at least a year.
Full training for you and your dog, on-going support and travelling expenses will be offered to assistance teams that pass the assessment process.
For those that need more training or support we have dedicated BBYS dog training partners that can help.
