Ted the Reading Dog!
Children can benefit educationally and emotionally, increase their understanding of responsibility and develop empathy and nurturing skills, through contact with a suitable, calm dog. In addition to these benefits, children take great enjoyment from interaction with animals. By having a ‘Reading Dog’ we want to encourage those children specifically who are vulnerable, or those who are less confident with reading, to have a friendly audience and to look forward to reading as a treat! Ted our reading dog has been carefully selected as suitable for this type of environment and has many years experience. We ensure Ted is well cared for and responsibly owned.
