Free Teaching Resources from People with Dogs

Wednesday 23rd March 2011

People with Dogs offer a comprehensive free teaching resource designed to combat anti-social behaviour with dogs in young people. It includes an original, short film of interviews with Robert Alleyne (BBC3’s Dog Borstal) dog owners and Brixton MC Wordsmith. The resources have been put together with the combined efforts of the Battersea Dogs & Cats Home, The Blue Cross, The Greater London Authority, the Metropolitan Police, RSPCA & Wandsworth Borough Council. The free teaching resource includes an eight minute film, four interviews and a workshop examining the issues of responsible dog ownership, breeding and neutering, anti-social behaviour with dogs, dog fighting and the importance of a lead and ID. The workshop also includes discussion points and activities designed to encourage young people to consider the consequences of owning a status dog for them, the dog and the general public.

The People with Dogs workshop is available free online for educational professionals, teachers and youth workers. The website also provides all the information required to deliver the resource including explanatory notes, curriculum links, and interactive activities. They are designed to be used with groups of 8-30 young people and shown either directly from the website using a whiteboard or laptop and projector.

Animal assaults have increased every year since 2003. 1,152 dogs were seized by the Met Police in 2009/10. Last year there were 5,837 hospital admissions due to dog bites & strikes. 11-19 year olds account for more dog assaults than any other age group.
