Paws for Reading
Duo Dogs' Paws for Reading Program trains volunteers and their personal dogs to be part of classroom and library settings.
Together, they provide incentive for children to practice reading to accepting and nonjudgmental listeners — dogs.
And with a dog’s encouragement and calming presence, young readers improve their focus, word recognition, and reading comprehension without feeling anxious.
Schools and libraries can join our incentive reading program allowing students the opportunity to earn books for their personal libraries.
