Artisan working with DHK Charity

Artisan-Med are proud to be working with this great cause Charity DHK.

Dogs Helping Kids works in all schools and colleges across the country including mainstream schools, behavioural schools, special need schools, further education colleges, preparatory schools, grammar schools and very small specialised schools. The primary aim of Dogs Helping Kids is to educate, help and support children and teenagers of all ages, backgrounds, sexes and abilities. This is achieved by training very carefully selected dogs known as DHK School Dogs to an incredibly high standard to work in the school, college and library environment as both educational and therapeutic aids.

The impact our DHK School Dogs have on children and teenagers in the educational environment is amazing and life changing. Every day across the country our DHK School Dogs are working with and helping children and teenagers. The following is being achieved :-

1) Improved academic achievement
2) Increase in literacy skills
3) Calm behaviour down
4) Increase in social skills and self esteem
5) Increased confidence
6) Teaching responsibility and respect to all life
7) Helping to prevent truancy and absenteeism
8) Motivating children who are often not that attentive within
    classroom environments
