Visiting the local elementary school 1st grade class is the best thing I have ever done with my dog! We are doing a reading program there, geared toward building confidence and skill in reading aloud. Its rewarding, fun, and Cabot loves the children and thrives in their company. If you want a copy of the article to the left, contact me. I am happy to share.
We also visit the hospital's extended care wing. Cabot brings a smile to the staff and some love to the patients. Their normally sterile day is broken up by a canine visitor, and they ask me to come back every time. That too is rewarding, though it's mentally harder on us both. Cabot never misses a beat!
