The Healing Species program is a Character Education/Violence Prevention Program that will be provided for your students for 11 weeks. Each lesson is 45 minutes long.

As a classroom teacher you know very well that negative student attitudes and behavior impact your ability to teach academics. The Healing Species is a prevention program designed to reduce disrespectful, irresponsible, and disruptive behaviors among students.

A non-profit organization, the Healing Species program uses rescued, abandoned, or abused dogs to teach character education and important life skills. The result should be improved student attitudes, behavior, and academic performance. A trained professional delivers the Healing Species Program and the dogs used are therapy dogs that have been trained to behave appropriately around children.
