About the Program:
The Bow Wow Reading Dogs program is designed to help below grade level readers improve their skills. Our program is based on the Intermountain Therapy Reading Education Assistance Dogs (R.E.A.D.) ® program (opens a new window).
The program improves children’s reading and communication skills by employing a powerful method: reading to a dog.
Teams are currently working with children in Round Rock ISD, Eanes ISD, Georgetown ISD, Jarrell ISD, Austin ISD, and Leander ISD and at the Pflugerville, Round Rock, Wells Branch and Leander Libraries on a regular basis. Our teams have provided many, many special onetime programs throughout the Greater Austin area.
