Reading to a dog helps children in many ways. Dogs help to create a safe, non-judgmental, experience, which studies show reduces anxiety, anger, and depression. At the same time, increased self-confidence and self-esteem create a sense of pride and motivation to read independently. Kids LOVE reading to our dogs! This is a free program designed for school-age kids.
