4:00 PM to 4:20 PM
4:30 PM to 5:00 PM

When registering online, it will appear that you are registering for a 30 minute session, but the last 10 minutes of the session block are to provide a break for our dog. Sessions are only 20 minutes long.

Research shows that reading to a dog is tremendously motivational for kids and provides a calming, relaxed environment for children who may feel hesitant or anxious about reading.

Kids must be school-aged, able to read some words on their own, and feel comfortable reading with a dog and the dog’s adult handler.
