Our School Dog - Mabel

You may be aware that there is a growing movement in many schools to reintroduce the concept of school pets as a way of teaching all children responsibility and providing a source of pleasure and learning.  Since the inception of Camulos, the staff, governors and I have been discussing the benefits of a school dog for our children.  There are a number of school dogs already in post locally and around the country and we firmly believe that having a school dog can only enhance and extend the children’s opportunities for learning – both academically and socially. 

At half-term my family will welcome a cockapoo puppy we have named Mabel and she will be regularly attending school. A cockapoo is a cocker spaniel/poodle cross but in this instance, both of the parents are cockapoos. Cockapoos are extremely good with children, intelligent, easy to train and are extremely low shedding and therefore classed as a hypoallergenic breed of dog.
