Animals are ideal reading companions because they help increase relaxation and lower blood pressure, listen attentively, do not judge, laugh or criticize, and allow children to proceed at their own pace.

WHY READ TO A DOG?

When a dog is "listening" fear of failure is removed, allowing a child to learn more effectively. The dog's handler is a skilled facilitator who provides subtle support without creating performance pressure in the child.
