Today our Canine Coaches celebrated National Read a Book Day! We read to the dogs in our playgroups before nap time. We had a great time and we think our pups did too!

It’s also a great day to remind everyone that one of the funding priorities for our very own Dogtopia Foundation is youth literacy programs.

The Dogtopia Foundation provides support for innovative youth literacy programs and educational initiatives. These programs ensure academic success and bright futures for elementary school students. As appropriate, those programs incorporating dogs in the programming are highly favored.

One of the Foundation’s successful grantees includes SitStayRead. SitStayRead’s mission is to advance children’s literacy skills using an engaging curriculum, certified dogs, and dedicated volunteers. Dogtopia was proud to assist in SitStayRead’s 2017, 2018, and 2019 Keep Reading Celebration.

What are you and your dog reading today?
