Registration for each Paws 4 Stories session opens one month before the session.

Paws 4 Stories is for children aged 7 – 10. It is run in partnership with the St. John Ambulance therapy dog program. In this program, a certified, friendly therapy dog sits with a child to help the child practice reading aloud. This is a great program for motivating young people who are hesitant or anxious about reading.

Children are welcome to sign up for a maximum of three sessions throughout the program series. Each session will last roughly 10 minutes.

  • Please register under your child's first and last name.
  • If you wish to bring another child, please create a separate registration.

Program instructions and assigned times will be emailed to registrants two days before the session. If you have not received the reminder, please check your email's junk or spam folder.
