Rockland — On Saturday, March 15, at 2 p.m. Steve Seekins and Naomi Howe of Therapy Dogs International will bring their therapy pups to Coastal Children's Museum to speak about how their hounds help children learn to read.

Seekins brings his canine colleagues to local libraries and classrooms through TDI’s Tail Waggin’ Tutors program whose main objective is to provide a relaxed and dog-friendly atmosphere that allows children to practice their reading skills.

Seekins and Howe will also talking about the different dog breeds that are in their pack and how all pets prefer to be touched and approached, an important part of being safe around animals. More information on Therapy Dogs International can be found at tdi-dog.org.

This workshop is included in the price of admission and free for members and is open to everyone at the museum.
