Burns By Your Side - The Scheme

Reading Dogs in Schools

Burns by Your Side is a scheme aimed at children who could benefit from improved reading and communication skills.

The idea which is tried and trusted in the US helps children in a variety of education settings gain confidence in building their vocabulary and fluency by reading to a dog.

Using specially trained volunteers and their companion dogs, these very special animals come to a school or library to hear the children read.

The scheme also supports children in nurturing or special provision units to help increase feelings of well-being through a therapy visit.

Reading with a companion dog can:

  • motivate a child to read independently and
  • build self-confidence and self-esteem
  • improve reading fluency
  • a child feel less stressed and anxious
