Bentley’s Buddies & Friends uses dogs to help children improve reading skills

When it comes to children and reading one of the most importance factors is their confidence and comfort. Today we learned how reading with a dog can help with that.

Nathan Lowe, The Indy Dog Whisperer, Nickie Favorite-Scott, head of Bentley’s Buddies and Friends, and her dog Timmy joined us today to share more about the non-profit organization, Bentley’s Buddies & Friends and to share how the Nathan has helped Timmy improve his behavior.

Bentley’s Buddies & Friends is a free service helping children improve their reading skills with the assistance of a certified Reading Buddy. A certified Reading Buddy provides a calm environment for a child to read and will not tell them they are wrong if they make a mistake.

If your little Reader needs some extra help, give them a call to see how they can help!
