You may remember that a few months ago we got to know our resident office dog, Ludo a little better. Ludo is pretty active around the office, from managing spreadsheets to ensuring that everyone gets lots of fresh air by taking them for daily walks, however he’s not the only busy pooch around.
Ludo has a wide circle of doggy friends, some of whom are Pets As Therapy (PAT) dogs who work in schools with children to improve their reading, as well as other activities. We’ve been lucky enough to learn about a lot of the work they do and the difference these four legged friends can make, and we’ve made it our mission to produce special custom stickers for as many of them as we can to give out in class to their learners.
Oscar is a labradoodle (just like our office dog) who works as a PAT dog in Northern Ireland. He visits a school every week and children read to him, and those who really need it can have special one on one time with him which really helps boost their confidence. Oscar has been such a big influence at the school that they surprised him, and his owner, with a whole display about him and the work he does. So on behalf of the children who work with him, and from all of us at The Sticker Factory, we’d just like to say to Oscar: good boy!

Pets As Therapy is a wonderful charity, and we’re working with them to hopefully get free special customised ‘Read2Dogs’ stickers to their volunteers to use on their school visits to reward the children they do such wonderful work with. If you’re a registered Pets As Therapy ‘Read2Dogs’ volunteer and would like to know more then drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
