Dogs are speechless animals, and communicating with an unknown human who knows how to speak is difficult, so its pretty obvious that its so much difficult to communicate with speechless dogs. We went to SVNIT college which i near my home and it was a group activity. Me and my friends decided to go there because due to the pandemic there’s not many students/people going to the college so there no one to feed the stray dogs.
LO – 2 Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills in the process
Me and my friends weren’t prepared for the behaviour that dogs will show, it can be seen in the picture that how dogs are afraid of us unknown human beings. It was difficult for us at first but as they got to know us and trusted us, they started mixing with us, I wasn’t scared of them as I’m pretty used to dogs and their nature. We were very happy at the end of the day cause we made new friends, it made us more confident inside and out and understand the true nature of dogs even if they are stray or not.
LO – 3 Demonstrate how to initiate and plan a CAS experience
We had to gather up together after the school, and we decided to buy the food together. We contributed the money and bought biscuits, dog food and bought water from our homes. We wanted to go to a place where there wasn’t much population so we can utilise our time and food in the best way. We decided of SVNIT college which was shut down since 6 months. Our decision came out to be very good as the stray dogs were very unhealthy and weak. After feeding them with food and water for 2 times every week for 4 weeks, they started to feel healthy and playful.
LO – 5 Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively
We went in a group of 4 and all were divided with equal amount of work. We divided the work of buying food, transport , water and we also car pooled to the location, this decision was taken due to the increasing population in the city. Working collaboratively definitely helped us cause there was 2 people who were scared of dogs, I talked to them and made them calm and at the end of the day they were free of this fear.
