"The main objective of this program is to provide a relaxed and "dog-friendly" atmosphere, which allows students to practice the skill of reading." Therapy Dogs International, Inc.
"It is so much fun for the children to read to a patient Therapy Dog. What an incentive! Children are introduced to the wonderful, magical world of books in a positive and unique way. In no time at all, the reading skills of most chidlren will improve." Therapy Dogs International, Inc.
