Why Classroom Canines?
With no judgement and plenty of attention from the dog and their volunteer, children who participate in this program show a desire to improve their reading, so they can come back week after week and show their new four legged friend how much better they can do.
Children can be complex little people and they can have the worries of the world on their shoulders. They can feel insecure, lonely, sad and distracted.
When a dog walks into the classroom, an insecure child can take charge of the dog and they can become friends. With strong evidence showing a link between confident children and the care of pets, Classroom Canines takes these learnings to the classroom, and creates a fun and non-judgemental environment to allow children to flourish.
