I Read to Animals

Buster practices being a good listener

On May 3, Buster Brown and I will be tackling the second piece of a 3-part therapy dog certification test.  And hopefully if all goes well, The Peach will follow suit shortly after with her own testing (fingers crossed).

There are a number of reasons why I’ve found therapy dog prep classes a worthwhile use of my time–not the least of which is that certified therapy dogs are, by definition, happy, well-behaved dogs too.  But more than anything, I would really love to help contribute to  volunteer reading programs like these.
