Students participating in the Southampton Union Free School District’s Extended School Year Program learned more about therapy dogs on Aug. 4. During the program, representatives from Love on a Leash introduced students to several therapy dogs and spoke about the important role the dogs play in helping individuals achieve physical, emotional and educational goals when visiting hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, libraries and schools.
