Kids have a natural affinity toward our canine friends. Chester's presence is calm and reserved while Theo can be a bit goofy and will smile at you and make you laugh.  Reading in this environment without the anxiety of being judged can be very beneficial and exciting for our young onesPlease call to register for one 10-minute session with one dog each day.

Read to a Dog
5:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Ages: 5 - 12 years

Chester is a 2.5-year-old Leonberger and Theo is a 2.5-year-old Bernese Mountain dog who love to be with kids, are easy to read to, great listeners, and are hoping to help kids acquire a love of books and reading.  Reading to dogs in a calm, non-judgmental atmosphere can bolster children’s confidence  and encourage them to feel good about reading aloud in the classroom.  It can also help an older child become comfortable with school presentations or public speaking. Kids have a natural affinity toward our canine friends. Chester's presence is calm and reserved while Theo can be a bit goofy and will smile at you and make you laugh.  Reading in this environment without the anxiety of being judged can be very beneficial and exciting for our young onesPlease call to register for one 10-minute session with one dog each day.
