School therapy dog insurance FAQs

What are the guidelines for therapy dogs in school?

Therapy dogs in schools always require adult supervision. Pupils cannot be left with the dogs unsupervised. Pupils need to be reminded of the appropriate behaviour around the animals before any interaction to ensure their safety, as well as that of the staff and the animals.

What should I consider when having a therapy dog in school?

The behaviour of animals or children can sometimes be challenging to predict, so the risk of injury or property damage is always a factor. It is important to consider that some children and staff may be allergic or have a fear of dogs.

Do all schools allow therapy pets?

Each school will have their own policy when it comes to allowing animals on site, so it is best to check with your own school first.
