Therapy Dog Reading Session

Saturday, April 15, 2023

Therapets of the Roanoke Valley 

A therapy dog can help students become more comfortable and confident in the classroom.

Less stressed.

Did you know that the simple act of petting a dog reduces stress levels? Not only will students become less stressed but have lower blood pressure.    

More focused.

The reduction of stress levels and anxiety offered by therapy dogs will help kids be more physically present during school. Plus, being able to play with a puppy helps boost the physical well-being of students.     

Students can sign-up for 15-minute reading sessions where they will get to read one-on-one with a therapy dog in a private room. (student, dog, and handler) 

To register call: 540-928-2900
