Asterisk (*) indicates teams certified to provide read-aloud programs to kids utilizing the R.E.A.D.® method


All Caring K9s Maui handlers are assessed, trained, evaluated, certified and mentored to participate in animal-assisted interactions, and their dogs are health and temperament screened. Teams are re-evaluated and qualified at least every 2 years. We also carry liability insurance to cover our teams for animal-assisted activities and therapy visits.


Our reading teams have completed training in Reading Education Assistance Dogs® (R.E.A.D.®),
a program of Intermountain Therapy Animals, Utah.
