Pets as Therapy - Reading dog

 

We are very fortunate to have a Reading dog visit our school every week. Misty, and her owner Mrs Donna Berry come to school and are given a small group of children to work with. The children are able to read to Misty and learn how to be gentle and calm around a working dog. Misty is a fully trained PAT (Pets as Therapy) dog and she is incredibly well behaved and listens to all the children telling their stories. We think this is a wonderful opportunity for our children, especially those who may find reading more challenging. The children love working with Misty and Donna and they would love her to come to school every day!
