Assistance Dog in Classes

Labrador dog looking over her shoulder at the cameraI have an assistance dog, Bindi, who helps me with some of the symptoms I have due to living with Lupus. She will attend all classes with me, but is very well trained and certified by Assistance Dogs New Zealand, so will not cause any disruption to classes.

Please keep this in mind when enrolling for classes if your child has an allergy to dogs. If your child is afraid of dogs, and you would like to meet me and Bindi before the class to reassure them, please feel free to contact me to arrange this.

You can learn more about Assistance Dogs New Zealand on the ADNZ website, or if you would like to support them, you can donate through my givealittle page or $1 from the sale of every copy of my book Aunt Kelly’s Dog goes to ADNZ.

Best wishes,
