Schedule K-9 Reading Buddy Sessions

In 2019 we began offering LIVE 15-minute reading sessions via ZOOM in response to the pandemic. While schools are now back in session, national statistics show that reading levels dropped as a result of the pandemic. Therefore, we continue to offer our virtual reading sessions as a convenience for busy families who want to motivate their child(ren) to read. As bonus, most of the on-line handlers are either retired or current school teachers. It doesn’t get any better than this folks! Parents and guardians, have a seat and relax while your child reads aloud to one of our therapy dog teams. Be sure to scroll down to view the schedule of each adorable K-9 Reading Buddy. Woof!
