Our Youth Worker, Emma, recently shared an experience that she had while mentoring an 'at risk' young person. As a reward for meeting the goals set by the young person, Emma and her client shared an experience of walking dogs at Monika's Doggie Rescue. They walked 'Marbles' and 'Spud', both had challenging behaviour issues ... Marbles barked a lot while Spud could be patted. Emma said that the young person handled this experience with ease and gave lots of encouragement to both dogs which seem to relax especially Marbles who stopped barking by the end of the walk. They used the time to talk about the concerns the young person had about returning to school and how she should view those concerns positively.
