About Book Buddies

Guardian Whiskers works with certified therapy dogs, parents, instructors, and therapists to make reading fun for kids. Use the power of a pet to boost confidence, relieve stress, and foster a dedication to reading.

Studies Show Animal Companions: Develop Social Skills & Soothe Anxiety

Children and their book buddies bond in a quiet, relaxed reading room. In the first session, a City Dog Vet clinician provides an introduction to dog behavior and the program. Our incentive program encourages kids to continue their literacy journey.
