Charlie, the PAT Dog

Charlie the Wilstead Pat Dog


This year, Wilstead is taking part in a programme with Pets As Therapy, a charity organisation which was founded in 1983 by Lesley Scott-Ordish.


Pets as Therapy train volunteers and their dogs to come into schools and other community spaces and provide support with well-being. All of the dogs pass through rigorous training programmes and special assessments. More about this can be read on their website, see the link below.


Wilstead children have the opportunity to spend some time with Charlie, who is a beautifully behaved, calm and cuddly little King Charles Spaniel! They use this time to talk to Charlie and his owner, learn about how he is cared for and enjoy the sense of well-being a pet can give us.
