Name of action 

The essence of the programme is that a small dog helps kindergarten and elementary school children to learn playfully, almost imperceptibly the traffic rules, the basics of proper road use.
Taking advantage of the Jack Russel terrier’s (name: Mancs) talents and love for children, the program has been structured to be easily adapted to the children's age, to their situation, which is also an interactive activity.
Main elements:
- short-lane barriers and obedience show starring Mancs
- road traffic signs education by using a frisbee
- playing tag game based on the Highway Code rules at the end of the class
 
The activity takes place in kindergartens and schools during classes, on invitation from the institution.
There are no co-operating partners.
