Woofs and Books

Our reading enrichment program for children ages 5 to 15 makes reading fun, boosts confidence and encourages respectful, humane treatment for all animals. It offers children the opportunity to read to dogs in our Woofs and Books program. Not only does this make reading fun, it also builds a child’s confidence in reading aloud. All dogs who participate in the program hold their Canine Good Citizen Title and many of them are working towards becoming certified therapy dogs. We meet the first Sunday of each month between 11am-12:15pm at Mr. Dog Training’s training center located at 270 State Rd. in West Bath. Please fill out the form below to reserve your child's 30 min reading time slot with one of the dogs. NO WALK-INS PLEASE; YOU MUST FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW TO RESERVE YOUR SPOT.
