218: Be Kind programme with Wild at Heart Foundation

The Wild at Heart Foundation believe that every single dog – no matter where in the world it is born, no matter its size, breed, age or circumstance – deserves to live a healthy, happy life. They champion compassion and collaboration; they believe that there is power in kindness and community, and that by working together towards a common goal, we can help make the world a better, kinder place.

Education plays a huge role in the welfare of dogs around the world. When humans learn to respect these incredible animals and appreciate the many wonderful things they can bring to our lives, they open themselves up to one of the most amazing relationships there is.

It has been developed alongside a team of passionate educators and is currently being trialled in a selection schools, to ensure that it’s impactful, positive and inspiring.
