TGAR Welcomes Ozzie the Pet Therapist


Youngsters at Tudor Grange Academy in Redditch have welcomed a new, and somewhat strange, addition to their community. Ozzie, who is a pet therapist, has been working with a number of students at the school who suffer from anxiety. The pooch works works for the charity Pets as Therapists and has previously worked in a number of different schools and hospitals.

Jodie Bolter, school principal, said that he has been a real help.

“All of the staff and students have loved having Ozzie on site,” she said.

The Pets as Therapists charity has a number of dogs that work across the country in different contexts and believe that they can help de-stress children and adults and bring a sense of happiness.
