A fulfilling visit, with a lot of physical contact and no verbal presentation. Functionality differed among children, but the number of our volunteers was sufficient thus all the children had a great time. We managed to make even the most difficult cases of children smile.
A moment from the interactive part of our visit, where children come in contact with our team’s dogs.
Athena, escorted by Bigla, are encouraging students to get to meet them.
Penny and the teacher are helping the student to meet this Maggie.
Bigla gets the childrens’ full attention.
This student, with the help of Christina, manages to pet Tai.
With a little encouragement from the teachers, this young student gets to meet Bigla, who is patiently waiting.
Maggie’s great company with the teacher and the student “lured” yet another student!
Tai, who has totally surrendered herself, seeks for attention and petting.
Frosso, accompanied by Lulu, responds to questions and concerns of both the older and the younger.
Roy, with the aid of Moera (unseen here, she is tiny…), succeeds in making a first encounter of the dog with this young student.
