Mostly Mutts' reading program is designed to assist in the adoption of shy and fearful dogs with high anxiety or dogs that are overly stressed. In addition, children who are involved learn about dog behavior and improve their reading skills simultaneously. These dogs are more likely to get adopted once they learn that approaching and interacting with people is better than hiding in the back or cowering in their kennel at adoption events. First, kids are taught how to read a dog’s body language and tell if they are stressed out or anxious. Afterwards, young volunteers are encouraged to sit in front of a shy dog’s kennel with a book and read to them. Ideally, a shy and fearful dog will approach and show interest. Additionally, children develop great empathy for animals. They see the fearfulness in the dogs dissipate and understand the positive effect they can have on an animal's life. This encourages children to look at things from an animal's perspective. In the long run, it helps the children better connect with animals and people in their lives.

The Mostly Mutts' reading program is hosted by trainer Emily Shervin of The Gratefull Dog. Emily has a Bachelor of Science from Coastal Carolina University. She has worked as a Veterinary Technician for 4 years in South Carolina and San Diego, CA. Emily was also a sea lion and dolphin trainer for the US Navy Marine Mammal Program for over 6 years. In 2007, Emily and her family moved to Kennesaw, GA, and opened The Gratefull Dog. Emily is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer.
