Dog Therapy

 
What better way to give back than with your dog!
 
Dog therapy has been one of my favorite ways to volunteer in the community.
We especially enjoy the Alexandria Public Library's Paws to Read program.
Elementary school-aged children practice reading aloud one-on-one to super friendly, trained dogs.
Studies show that dogs are great, non-judgmental listeners who can boost the confidence and literacy skills of young readers.
