Congratulations to Dr. Miguel Cardona on being President Biden’s pick for Secretary of Education. Here’s what Dr. Cardona said about our program for an article that was published in The Bark:

“This is much more than a dog-in-the-classroom program. I don’t want to downplay dogs in the classroom, but that’s not what this curriculum is about. Most kids have an instinctive, positive emotional connection to animals. This program recognizes that connection and meets the kids where they are. It then adds complexity and structure to develop the interpersonal and emotional skills kids need for academic achievement. Skills like empathy, self-regulation and impulse control are crucial for student success. In fact, I would argue that Mutt-i-grees helps provide a social and emotional bridge that takes kids where they need to be to become successful students.”
