School Animals

We are lucky enough to have two school dogs who provide much needed therapy for children and they also like to listen to children read and enjoy looking at their lovely work. The Luton Infant and Nursery School Dog ‘Albus’ has lived with Mrs Gamet and her family since he was 10 weeks old. He is very much a family dog but with the right temperament to work with a wide range of children and adults within the school environment. Albus is a very caring and well behaved puppy.
The Luton Infant and Nursery School Dog ‘Rupert’ has lived with Mrs Tufnail and her family since he was 10 weeks old. He is very much a family dog but with the right temperament to work with a wide range of children and adults within the school environment. Rupert is a very caring and well behaved puppy.

Albus and Rupert are brothers as they came from the same litter of puppies. Their mother is a fully grown Shih Tzu and their father is a miniature Shih Tzu and so Albus and Rupert will always will be small for their breed.
Albus and Rupert are members of the Dog’s Trust which means they have public liability insurance. This means they is able to come into school. Albus and Rupert regularly visit the vet for check-ups. Whilst they are there they administer worm and flea treatments.
