Mablethorpe Primary Academy

Betty the Wonderdog

We would like to introduce you to Betty our adorable school therapy dog. Betty is a Cockapoo, which are bred to be sociable dogs and are often used as therapy dogs as they are known to be good with children. The Cockapoo is a low/non moulting dog so the risk of an allergic reaction is minimised. Betty belongs to Mrs Hickinbottom, who has completed an accredited Therapy Dog course.

Betty will be with Mrs Hickinbottom in school and be visiting children around the academy. Betty will be timetabled to work with individual and/or small groups of pupils. At all times Betty will be under adult control and will follow the MPA School Dog Policy and Guidelines.
