We are a charity that provides stories, games, activities and resources for you to use with your child aged 0 to 9 years of age. We look at different subjects and try to help you educate them to help keep them safe, and encourage them to talk and ask for your help if they ever need to.

"What has Dog, Duck and Cat achieved for our staff and children? Dog, Duck and Cat is an easy usable resource for staff to plan PSHE/Safeguarding lessons around a number of topics which are linked to trends of concerns we have in our school. The lesson plans and resources are easy to use and accessible for teachers and support staff.
These sessions have been used in 1-1, small group and Nurture group intervention. This programme provides use with tools to support our children so they know how to keep themselves safe and to build up resilience from Early Years to Year 6"

"Our children are learning about senses so by asking the children what things smelt and felt like was helping towards our topic at nursery. It was good when you talked about different dangerous materials and then each child talked about their own thought and ideas "
"My 3 year old little girl and I were in the kitchen. I went to put the washing liquid – tabs away in the cupboard under the sink. She was sat in her high chair watching me and she said, ‘Mommy No!’. I asked her what she meant and she said, ‘Dog, Duck and Cat said put them away safely, that’s not safe!’. My daughter and I had read the 'Keeping people safe' story and it had obviously had an impact on her"
“ It is a good way to get parents involved and get them supporting us by delivering the same messages ”
"It’s just nice having something to use with the kids, something to start the conversations I know I need to have with them"
"Children fully engaged with a lovely safety message and all children were encouraged to participate. Thank you"
