child reading to dog
Public Reading Program


Power Paws is involved in a community reading program.  Young people join our puppies in training at a public library and have the opportunity to read a story to a puppy.  This program is especially beneficial to a person that is struggling with literacy; the dog both relaxes the person and listens attentively.  The person grows more proficient at reading while not being judged on his/her ability.


Public School Reading Program


This program is similar to the public reading program, but is held in conjunction with the Scottsdale Unified School District.
