From our trauma-informed positive education perspectives, we urge educators to consider savouring as a strategy to build relational attachment.  We often introduce the word ‘attunement’ which describes the process of two individuals coming into tune with one another, much like the vibration of tuning forks.  We find that animal assisted therapeutic experiences are a powerful attunement strategy.  When vulnerable children are taught to savour their special experiences with animals like Flash, the dogs become a shared focus of how healthy, attuned relationships make us feel.
