Students Read to Service Dogs

Students at Marathon celebrated a popular Literacy Week event Wednesday by reading to area service dogs in the school media center. Earlier in the week, the students who wanted to attend found or created a selection on the topic of ‘something only a dog would love’ to bring to the event to read to the dogs.
 
“The students had a chance to know a little bit about each of the dogs before reading their selections one-on-one to the dogs,” library program manager Dr. Kathy Lancaster explained. The event started with a short presentation about types of services that dogs can be trained to perform such as providing comfort and emotional supports, performing military services including search and rescue, and assisting with physical tasks for persons with disabilities. The visiting handlers introduced their dogs and gave a brief background of the dogs and the services they provide. The dogs varied in size, breed, and type of training from a Shiloh Shepherd to a border collie, English lab, golden retriever, chihuahua, and several mixed breeds. Many of the dogs were in animal shelter care when they were selected for service training. Approximately 160 students and eight dogs participated in this, the fifth annual Service Dog Reading Day at Marathon High. For more information contact Dr. Lancaster at kathy.lancaster@keysschools.com.
