Pet Pep

​Greg with his bio-security dog
2017 Pet PEP
Students were thrilled to have the Pet PEP team visit the school on Thursday.  This year the Pet PEP team  consisted of Greg from Bio – Security QLD, Nicole from Greencross Vets and Cassie and Lee from the RSPCA.  Lee and Cassie used a puppet to teach the students about animal behaviour, for example, how to tell if a dog is aggressive or friendly.  Greg had brought some of his dogs with him and demonstrated how cleverly the dogs could find hidden scents – dogs that are trained in this are used by bio-security to find drugs and weapons.   
Nicole focussed on the proper way to look after animals – ensuring they are free from fleas and ticks, feeding them properly and making sure they have water, exercising them, getting vet help if needed, making sure they are not bored, keeping them the right temperature, giving them shade on hot days and always treating them with respect and love.
