"My Name Is Mabel And I Am The HAB Therapy Dog"

Mabel Dog 1Hello, I'm Mabel and I am the HAB therapy dog. Let me tell you a little bit about myself.

I was born on the 5th of July 2020. My mum is a black Labrador, and my dad is a miniature red Poodle.                         

I am hypoallergenic which means that I have a very very low risk of causing any allergies to anyone. My coat is low shedding so you will not see a trail of my hair wherever I have been.

I am also a soft breed – this means that I am very calm, patient and kind. My vet has done a temperament assessment on me and confirmed this!

Both my owner (Mrs Landman) and I have completed therapy dog training. We have also ensured that all the necessary risk assessments are done so that it is safe for everyone when I am school.

I am here to support you with your mental health and well-being. I am also very good at sitting quietly and listening to you read to me and when you are feeling anxious or stressed, I will happily sit with you until you feel calm again.

Mabel Dog 2Although I am super cute, I understand that some of you will not be comfortable near me. I completely get that. If you simply ignore me, I will know not to pay you any attention. Likewise, if you would like to learn to be comfortable around dogs, just tell us and we can support you with that.

Please do not feed me any treats other than the ones Mrs Landman gives you. I am not clever enough to know what not to eat and things like raisins and chocolate are poisonous for me.

It will really help me a lot too if you keep the school clean and tidy – please do not drop any litter! I would be really tempted sniff at it and try to eat it.

I am usually in for no more than four days a week (I need my rest too!). you will know if I am in from the sign in reception and outside Mrs Landman’s office.

I really look forward to spending time with you and getting to know you!
