Pepper is Top Dog

We have received some fantastic reviews of the positive benefits brought into class by Pepper, our Canine Assisted Learning therapy dog. Pepper joined Arbour Vale School at the beginning of the year, and she is already making a very positive impact particularly with the Profound and Multiple Learning Disability group. Here’s some of the feedback she’s received:

“Thank you so much for bringing Pepper to come and see our class this year. She is always so calm, gentle and loving having such a positive effect on the students.

N has laughed and smiled, tracked her across the room and really enjoyed her company. She never tracks anything / anyone but Pepper for that long!

A is the calmest and most engaged with Pepper! Pepper has helped A develop her communication by requesting more and listening to our questions. She has also developed her physical skills, using her hands / fingers to grip treats and then stretch her arms to give them to pepper! She also helps A to calm when she is in pain or distressed.

Pepper is not only a lovely pup, but a real asset to our PMLD pupils.

Thank you for sharing her time with us this year.”

Well done Pepper.
