Pups @ Putterham: Read to a Dog!

Reading is more fun when you’re reading to a dog! Our specially trained therapy dogs are accompanied by their human handlers, and will sit quietly while you read aloud to them. Bring a favorite book, and relax while you read to a friendly, furry, four-legged friend! For kids grades K-4. Sessions are 15 minutes and registration is required.

is a seven-year-old chocolate English Labrador Retriever who enjoys playing with sticks, chasing after tennis balls and swimming. He also loves to have his belly scratched. Buddy was the smallest puppy in his litter of 10, but you would never know it now! Buddy’s therapy dog teammate is Deb, an avid reader.

Goose is an utterly lovable and affectionate black English Labrador Retriever who loves hot dogs and his squeaky rubber chicken! His favorite day is his birthday, when he gets treated to a pup cake and a romp around Castle Island.
