Delta Classroom Canines Program

School-based programs that cater for the individual needs of primary and secondary students, utilising best practice animal welfare design.


Classroom Canines is aimed at children of primary or high-school age who would benefit from the therapeutic intervention of a Therapy Dog. We partner with schools and other education providers to deliver collaborative animal assisted education programs to targeted students on a regular on-going basis, or the broader school-population as requested. 

Our one-on-one or small group sessions sees one Therapy Dog Team attend weekly during school terms to work with students on individual goals as identified in collaboration with Educators. This might include literacy development, pro-social skills, motor skills, to encourage attendance and increase motivation, increase social connectedness, contribute to improved mental health outcomes.


Our large group sessions, administered through Delta's Paws the Pressure program, support general well-being and stress relief initiatives for students through the provision of several Therapy Dog Teams.​
