Wellbeing Dog Program

Wellbeing Dog Program


Make A Difference WA are trialling a Wellbeing dog program into the schools that they sponsor. These dogs will provide comfort and support to students suffering from anxiety, loneliness or sadness. Dogs have been found to significantly reduce stress and anxiety in children , improve children's immune systems and cognitive development.

The first dog is being trialled as part of the children's preventative mental health program, The Magic Coat and will travel to schools, hospitals and refuges to support children doing The Magic Coat Program. This dog is a Cavoodle and has been named Monty The Magic Coat Dog.

We sincerely appreciate the breeders, Peppertree Lane for helping us choose the right puppies and ensuring they have their initial wellbeing dog training for the program.

A big thank you to, to City Farmers Dog Wash in Hillarys for ensuring Monty will always look and smell his best.
