#var:page_name# cover

Though the children believe they are teaching dogs to read, they are actually teaching themselves. With the focus on the dog, children feel less pressure or embarrassment about their reading skills. And, the dogs love the attention! Kids may bring their own book or borrow one of ours to read to a dog for up to 10 minutes.

No registration required.
