What to expect from our
Responsible Pet Interaction Workshops

We start with a small introduction to the children about what to expect and the importance of the 5 freedoms regarding pet ownership.

We then break into smaller groups so that a couple of groups can complete colouring or work sheet activities. The remaining group has time to be shown how to hold the rabbits or guinea pigs, as well as care information about what each animal needs to stay happy and healthy.

You can invite us along to add an educational touch for schools, kinders and community groups or simply provide a fun and interactive environment for your children at a Private Party or Public Event.

Animals can include:

Rabbits, Guinea Pigs or Chickens

What We Bring:

  • Approx 8-10 animals (depending on program)
  • Animal feed
  • 6 x stools for kids to sit on
  • Water bowls
  • Waste bucket (for cleaning up after animals)
  • Appropriate Activity Sheets
  • Tarp (if required)
  • Fenced Enclosure (max size 1m X 1m).

Please remember when you are planning your event we require:

1. Close access to set-up area (no more than 30m distance from our vehicle)
2. Clear access from our vehicle to set-up area (no obstacles, stairs, lifts, steep slopes, etc)
3. For safety reasons we appreciate assistance in keeping curious onlookers at a safe distance until set-up is complete.
4. Access to water for the animals.

What age group best suits the AOTM Responsible Pet Interaction:

Preschool, Kindergarten, Child Care & Primary School Education from Foundation to Year 6. But the information & interaction can be enjoyed by all ages.

Little kids love to learn, and interaction with animals help to solidify that learning .
Primary school children will love the opportunity to get up close and personal with all our friendly animals! The program fits in perfectly with the school curriculum, and can be a great teaching aid. Allowing the children to be interactive helps to develop their interest in animals, and this can be translated well to the classroom.

Our responsable pet interaction is perfect for for students who are getting a class pet, or are just learning about responsibilities in relation to other living things

Our engaging approach to learning will ensure that it is a class to remember!

Responsable Pet Interaction & Early Learning

Our focus on Science Foundations & complimenting the Australia School Curriculum.

Responsable Pet Interactions Objective:
Learn the 5 freedoms in relation to owning pets and how these freedoms relate to everyday life.

-Identify and read common pet body language in order to develop an appreciation and understanding of how to
behave appropriately and safely around them.
-Understand important pet owner responsibilities and rules, and the connection to the health of the community and
-Understand the importance of choosing an appropriate pet, general welfare and husbandry requirements.
The way an animal moves does depend on a variety of factors, including their size and shape.
People use science in their everyday lives, which includes caring for their environment and living things.
We encourage children to communicate their observations and ideas in a variety of ways through oral discussion and direct animal interaction. We ask thought provoking questions and have plenty of activity sheets available from our website you are welcome to download & print out prior to our visit.
