We Taught Some People About Animal Rescue

20100710c.jpg
Last week, we gave a talk at Takatsuki City Elementary School about "What happens to abandoned dogs and cats" and "How to interact with a dog."

We are truly grateful for this opportunity provided by the staff of the Abuyama Area Circle Wakuwakutai (Excitement Troop), which supports the Abuyama Elementary School PTA.

The main aspects of the program included an introduction to ARK, the "What a Dog Needs to Live Happily" guessing game, a slideshow, and time for dog petting.
The main participants were children in the lower grades of elementary school. All those who participated, including the mothers who attended, listened seriously to us.

For the dog petting time, we asked our Head Instructor, Koruri, to attend.
We had given the children a "letter from Koruri," in advance so none of them yelled when they saw the dog, ran around, screamed or suddenly touched her head from above, and everyone interacted with her very skillfully.

This was Koruri's first time doing anything like this, so she was very nervous, and not able to perform her tricks (high five, turning, slalom, ball catch, etc.) like she usually does. But she was gentle and calm, which was great.

I was the one who was no good.
I felt that standing up and talking in front of people and communicating something to them was really hard.
There are many things I could have done better, but I want to create more opportunities like this instead of just getting caught up in the everyday chaos.

If any of our readers are affiliated with a school or work with children, would you contact us? We will be waiting for your call!
