Highlander Hownds Therapy Dogs

Highlander Hownds Therapy Dogs

The Highlander Hownds serve the students and staff of Howell Public Schools. By their very presence, these highly trained dogs create positive learning experiences that can help improve a student's confidence, motivation and overall academic achievement. 

The Highlander Hownds are also important ambassadors for Howell Public Schools, and their appearance at local events brings added visibility to the district.  

Our Hownds work in may ways. By their example, they:

  • Model good behavior in the classroom
  • Help reduce negative behaviors
  • Have a calming effect on students
  • Encourage postive choices and good decision-making

Students Learn life lessons and are better able to:

  • Get along with peers and teachers
  • Be more friendly and trusting
  • Show respect for personal boundaries
  • Resolve conflict without becoming angry
  • Be more patient and empathetic
  • Express themselves and share the difficulties in their lives. 
The effect on students is more than remarkable, its magical.
