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!

When it comes to Halloween, it’s a holiday that should be fun for the whole family, including our pets! Nathan Lowe, The Indy Dog Whisperer, has a few tips to make it a good experience for your dog and those around them.

1. Constant Knocking/Doorbell Can Stress Your Dog Out!

      – This can put your dog on “high alert”

      – Repeated stressors are hard on a dogs body and mind

2.  Find an Outdoor Alternative

     – Get the dog out of the house (in costume 😊)

     – Use the opportunity to socialize/desensitize your dog in the neighborhood

     – Take dog on a drive if the neighborhood activity is overwhelming for them

3.  Stay Calm and Take Charge!

     – Avoid approaching other people’s dogs or letting them approach yours (unless the dogs know each other)

     –  Avoid trying to comfort your dog if they are tense

     – Protect your dog from unwanted contact

     – Correct your dog for barking or lunging

REMEMBER: Keep all candy out of reach of your dog. Chocolate consumption can cause serious illness or even death.!
