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 a reminder, please check your email's junk or spam folder. 

Registration is closed.
