Kea Kids News: Therapy dog Teddy takes lead in the classroom

Learning is a lot more fun for students at Pinehaven School, thanks to their special helper Teddy the spoodle.

Teddy is a therapy dog, which means he helps people who are feeling sad or stressed by keeping them company and providing plenty of cuddles.

He visits the Upper Hutt school three mornings a week, but Kea Kids News reporter Mark Hayward, 9, finds out he gives more than just hugs. He also helps with maths games, reading and is even the playground monitor.

See Teddy in action in the Kea Kids video here and hear why the students love having him in the classroom.
