There seems to be no end to the list of jobs that can be given to a good dog.
Next up: Audience dogs
You’ve probably heard of Toastmasters, which are groups that meet where participants practice their public speaking and presentation skills. But did you know that the Kogod School of Business at American University in Washington, DC has introduced Audience Dogs into their program?
Students practice their speeches in front of a dog, who has been selected to be secure, calm and confident to make eye contact. The service is provided free-of-charge.
A non-judgmental, cute, and attentive audience!
