Reading to a dog or other pet creates a supportive and fun environment in which readers of all ages and abilities can practice their skills with confidence and joy. Research shows that the more a child reads, the more their reading skills improve. For nervous or self-conscious readers, reading to therapy dogs can be a helpful way to practice reading without feeling intimidated or judged. For readers of any age and level, dogs from Therapy Dogs International are here to listen!
