Ferne is top dog

Ferne, our Canine Assisted Learning Dog, is once again providing support to students at The Skills Hub. She visits every week with her owner Angela and spends time with individual students on a one to one basis and in lessons.

Students say Ferne helps them to feel calm and spending time with her is good for their mental health and wellbeing.

Ferne, is six and half years old and  has been visiting the Skills Hub for a number of years now. She’s a labrador, a breed known for their empathy and calmness.

Ferne’s favourite things are treats, chasing her ball and of course students at The Skills Hub!
