Clancy is our little OrganiDog! He is a Bichon-Poodle, which means he has wool fur so is non-allergenic. He has been coming to OrganiKids since he was 8 weeks old & he hangs out in the office with Deb when he’s not running around outside with the children, chasing balls! The children love him & he is great for calming them down if they’re feeling a little sad.
Zuko & Cherry
Last but not least, are our little OrganiPigs. They are very gentle & love nothing more than a snuggle with the children whilst munching on some greens from the garden. Again, they are great for calming & distracting if a child is a little sad. They also love going for little weekend holidays at children’s houses!
