Heart of Texas Therapy Dogs encourage children to read by providing a non-judgmental listener. Our furry listeners enjoy lying next to the reader and being read to-they won't laugh if a child stumbles over a word. The relationship between child and dog enables the child to gain a positive attitude about reading, improve reading skills, build confidence and enjoy reading.
