This is Harley, he belongs to nurse Lindsay Cotterill:
Tomorrow will be Harley's first visit to Friends of the Brigg infants school as part of the Read2Dogs scheme.
To qualify as a Therapy dog Harley has passed a temperament test, is up to date with all vaccinations and parasite control. He will stay on his lead with Lindsay during his visit, where he will meet the children and listen whilst they read to him.
The scheme is proven to help children who may be low in confidence with reading by providing a calming and non-judgemental environment.
If any one would like to read any more information about the dogs and the scheme, this is a link to the Pets As Therapy website -
