Wild at Heart Foundation believe that learning to love dogs is one of the most rewarding experiences any child can benefit from. We’re honoured to have helped thousands of children (and their parents!) feel safer, happier and more emotionally intelligent around dogs through our education initiatives that seek to create better relationships between humans and animals by:

  • helping people to feel more safe and confident around dogs
  • teaching appropriate behaviour when handling and interacting with dogs
  • dispelling myths around dogs that can be harmful for both humans and animals
  • fostering respect for dogs, the role they play in our lives and society, and our responsibility of care

The role education plays in the welfare of dogs around the world cannot be underestimated. When humans learn to respect these incredible animals and appreciate the many wonderful things they can bring to our lives, they open themselves up to one of the most amazing symbiotic relationships on this planet.

Which is why we’re so excited to an exciting new development for 2021, the launch of our ‘Be Kind’ schools programme – read more here, including how you can get involved!
