We can say that stray dogs who get into an animal shelter are very lucky, because they are given a chance to find a home and a family. But not all dogs behave cheerfully and can trust people. Some animals, after a sad experience of living on the street, are not able to let a stranger near them.

Therefore, for a shelter in Missouri, Joe Klepaki came up with the program "Reading Friends" (The Shelter Buddies Reading), which helps bullied dogs adapt. The essence of therapy is that children 6-15 years old choose a shy animal (previously, children are taught to understand the body language of dogs, they should see when the animal is stressed or nervous), sit down in front of a transparent aviary and begin to read.

According to Joe Klepaki, the childish timbre of the voice and the calm rhythm calm the intimidated animal, sooner or later any creature will show curiosity and try to approach. Then the children encourage this interest with something delicious. Such therapy not only helps dogs, but also allows children to practice reading, as well as develop a love for animals and a real connection with them.
