School dog welcomes students each day

Meet Baltic.

He’s a four-year-old goldendoodle that has an important job at Living Stones. He is at school every school day all day and students are welcome to pet and interact with him. Research has shown many positive benefits to having a dog in school, including higher attendance, lower anxiety, and improved reading scores.
Baltic passed all the required behaviors for the American Kennel Club’s Canine Good Citizen designation, which many consider to be the gold standard. He’s hypoallergenic, and enjoys greeting students each day and going out for recess.
