Using Dogs in Schools to Teach Social Skills, Heal Emotional Ills and Fight Bullying

Holly Elissa Bruno with Adele Little, Ann Ditty, Joe Mazza

The program’s director has reported significant success, so we asked a couple of school leaders to help us determine whether programs like these are a truly viable way to make a difference in children’s lives.
