What a great idea! This Humane Society has come up with a program to help their dogs start trusting humans again. It’s called the “shelter buddies reading program”
The only thing they need to bring is a book (or several!) of their own choosing.
The children then simply sit infront of a kennel with a dog they want to read to, and begin reading from their book. They are able to practice reading and public speaking in a nonjudgmental environment, and the dogs are able to slowly adjust to the presence of humans.”
