Seeking a registered therapy dog and handler

We're looking for a few good... dogs! We are hoping to begin a new literacy program at the library that utilizes dogs to help kids enjoy reading. Reading therapy dogs can help kids read better because for children it can be easier to practice reading aloud with a dog rather than in front of classmates or parents, gaining confidence without fear or embarrassment of making mistakes. We are looking for a registered therapy animal to visit the library occasionally and sit or nap while kids read to it.

Would you like your dog to be a reading therapy dog at the Pinedale Library? Teton County Pet Partners, the local chapter of the national organization Pet Partners, can help you and your dog become a registered therapy team this spring. Begin the process by emailing info@tcpetpartners.org or by calling Kelly Chadwick at (307) 690-8532.
