Dogs in War: A History Resource for 11-14 year olds

a fresh approach to the study of World Wars I and II

Dogs Trust is working towards the day when all dogs can enjoy a happy life, free from the threat of unnecessary destruction. One of our key aims is to reduce significantly the number of stray and abandoned dogs in the UK. Our education programme is committed to educating responsible dog owners of the future. This resource has been produced by Dogs Trust to provide a fresh approach to the study of World Wars I and II. This unique History resource for 11-14 year olds has been written, trialled and reviewed by practising teachers of History across the UK and is designed to meet the variety of curricular needs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Dogs in War: A History Resource for 11-14 year olds (or see here) covers the key topics in World Wars I and II by highlighting the ways in which the military and governments on both sides made use of man’s best friend.

  • World War I
    • Trench Warfare & Gas
    • Trench Warfare & Communications
  • World War II
    • Preparation for War
    • Air Raids
