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.

Book your 15 minute session here.

February 21: Rafi, with handler Susan Fried
February 28: Goose, with handler Lisa Griffin
March 13: Buddy, with handler Deb Harrow
March 20: Motley, with handler Ann Zumwalt
March 27: Lochlann, with handler Jim O’Brien

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.

is a young, sweet Goldendoodle who grew up in a house lined with books. He loves people of all ages, balls, treats and belly rubs. He is happiest when out on walks in the neighborhood, will give a high-five if asked nicely, and is the favored subject of his handler Liz Linder, a local photographer.

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.
