K9 Kids - Sessions to help children learn to meet dogs safely and confidently 

These sessions aim to build childrens' confidence around dogs. They are suitable for junior dog lovers and those children who are a little wary of dogs and want to be introduced to a dog in a safe, controlled environment. Children will gain hands-on experience of meeting and greeting a dog the safe way and will learn what to do when encountering dogs out and about. We also explore a few fun facts about dogs and practice meeting and greeting with Blaize, the gentle Golden Retriever. 

The sessions are for children aged 5-16 but children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult.   

Sessions will be held on Thursday, 28th July, Wednesday 3rd August, Wednesday, 10th August and Friday, 19th August. The sessions are 10:30 am - 12:30 pm. 

To search dates and book places, please use the form below.

Each session is the same, so we envisage different children attending each session. The idea is to help as many children as we can feel confident in the company of dogs. You can book your child onto a session by calling the Centre or by completing the form below. Places are free and are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. The booking form must be completed by a parent or guardian. Light refreshments and some take-home resources will also be provided free of charge. 

These sessions are free to children, thanks to a Co-op Local Communities grant. We ask that parents drop off children ten minutes before the session starts and pick them up at the end. Children under 8 must be accompanied by a responsible adult, however.
