Teaching Your Dog to Read
No, really! Dogs can be taught to recognize written words as cues.
Dont laugh. If Bonnie Bergin, EdD, has her way, dogs all over the world will soon be reading maybe not books and articles, but individual words or sets of words strung together. Now president of the Bonnie Bergin Assistance Dog Institute, the worlds only academic college that awards associate and masters degrees in dog studies, Dr. Bergin originated the service dog concept when she founded Canine Companions for Independence more than 30 years ago.
