Read to the Dogs
Would your child like a patient, attentive friend to read to? Read to the Dogs provides an opportunity for your child to read to registered therapy dogs in a relaxed atmosphere. The dogs sit calmly and quietly for a story. Children can practice reading out loud without fear of judgement. It's a great way for children to gain confidence in their reading.
Registered dogs are provided by Southwest Canine Corps of Volunteers and Alliance of Therapy Dogs (formerly Therapy Dogs, Inc).
