Bear, a therapy dog, helps children understand non-verbal communication. Through the stories of Bear's life, children can relate to and normalize their experiences of joy, fear and anger. Children learn about Bear's fear of thunderstorms or difficulty sharing his toys with other dogs. These lessons teach children how dogs also struggle with making good choices and can shine with the power of positive reinforcement. Bear is a veteran therapy dog of Soul Friends, Inc working for over four years visiting thousands of children.
