Ms Lesley combines her decades of teaching experience with her dog training skills to deliver an engaging and relevant presentation on Dog Body Language and Dog Safety to kids. The kids take home the informational/activity kit (the Stop, Look and Paws) which reinforces the concepts learned. I hope that more schools would incorporate activities such as this. The kids loved it Thank you Ms. Lesley!”
“Students understanding of dog safety was evident in the follow up pictures that they drew. Children eagerly shared personal experiences that were relevant to situations when they might approach a dog.nStudents were excited about the topic, as well as the sticker books.
Thank you again for providing us an opportunity to learn about such an important topic, and share the information with family and friends.”
