Fiona also taught us about WALT
• Walk slowly up in front of a dog because if you go behind the dog might get a fright.
• Ask the dog’s owner if can you pet their dog.
• Let the dog sniff your hand. Remember to use your safe hand, cover your fingers and let the dog sniff your hand.
• Touch the dog gently.
Never judge a dog by its looks. It might look happy but if could be grumpy. If you are afraid of a dog and it jumps on you, Fiona showed us how to stand still covering our fingers and making our arms into an x-factor sign.
All of the boys really enjoyed the visit and we hope Dogs Trust will come and visit us again in the future.
Here are some photos of Ms Byrne's class enjoying Fiona's talk.
