Benson has arrived at Elizabeth College in Guernsey. He is currently training to become a fully qualified therapy dog. But because of his serene temperament he is allowed to pop into the school for a few hours every day.
Therapy dogs can reduce stress in the school day, with staff and students alike able to visit the four-legged friend as and when they feel like it.
Having a therapy dog like Benson in a school environment can help to relieve stress and improve mental well-being.
One year 12 student says Benson has helped him cope with the pressures of A-levels.
Benson is undergoing his training with Paws for Support. Every Saturday morning he goes to different locations on Guernsey and does different training assessments with his handler Rick James.
Benson adds that extra bit of happiness to life at Elizabeth College, bringing the pupils together to share a quiet moment with their furry friend.
