Rescue Readers The benefit of the Rescue Readers reading program is for dogs to become accustomed to having people around their kennel who are not taking them out, feeding them, or asking anything of them at all. This has shown to reduce anxiety in high energy dogs and help to calm more fearful timid dogs and improve behavior when being approached by potential adopters. It also helps dogs get used to being around people of all ages, genders, and races. It has proven to be a win-win situation for all involved in that it also helps boost the confidence of the readers as well as the dogs, especially children that may be shy or self-conscious since dogs are not judgmental. It has also been proven to increase the reading levels of young readers who consistently participate in the program. Register here for the Rescue Readers Program!
