#‎Teachers‬ - We've been coming across a lot of studies that show the positive effect pets have on kids with ‪#‎autism‬. If you have seen these effects first-hand in your classroom, we'd love to hear about it! Please leave a comment or message us!

Teachers are finding that classroom pets are a good tool that helps students learn about empathy. Do you agree? #teachers #empathy #education http://www.petsintheclassroom.org/building-empathy-in-the-classroom/

Have you checked out the "Dogs and Cats Hear Much, Much More!" PDF that is available on our website? The book, written by by Janet Marlow, M.A. is a wonderful resource that will help your students understand how animals relate to the world through their acute sense of hearing. Recommended for children ages 7-12.
