A Walk Across America – As we walk across America this year, we will be making stops at all kinds of facilities to do any of the programs mentioned below. One of those stops could be to see you! If you are interested in having us stop in on you, your school, or facility, please contact us. Our route is always changing and your inquiries could very well help us as we make decisions about where we will be passing through. We can’t wait to hear from you!
Pet Therapy Visits – Pet therapy visits happen in a variety of settings for many different reasons and for all kinds of people. They can happen in a hospital, nursing home, rehab facility, children’s home, or even in the comfort of your own home. Visits can last from 15 minutes to a couple of hours depending on the circumstances.
Reading Programs - For children who are struggling to learn to read, a therapy dog can turn reading from a frightening and frustrating experience into something that is fun, relaxing, and something to look forward to. When a child gets to read to a dog, they don’t have to worry about getting the words wrong or reading too slowly. The dog doesn’t care. They are just happy to be there and that attitude has a way of rubbing off on their little human companions.
How To Meet A Strange Dog – This educational program is designed to teach children how to help keep themselves safe around dogs, whether it is a new dog or an old friend. Children and dogs often seem made for each other, however there are inherent risks and not every dog is good with kids. This program is meant to educate children on how to read a dog’s basic body language, how to properly approach and meet a dog, and how to politely interact with a dog. You can see our blog entry Kids: How to Meet a Strange Dog for more information about this program.
Life With Dogs - This is a simple educational program about a happy, healthy life with dogs and getting the most out of your relationship with your canine companion. We cover basic care, exercise, dog-friendly activities, and a brief introduction to pet therapy and volunteer work with your dog.
