Book Dexter the Dog and Tonya Wilhelm

Would you like Tonya and Dexter to come out to your school or library for a book reading?

Tonya is available for library appearances and readings. Tonya can also include bringing her trained dog and the lead of the book series, Dexter. Dexter is a ten-year-old happy Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who has accompanied her as her dog training demo dog at large to pet expos and as a visiting therapy dog. Dexter and Tonya are always a hit with children and have quite a following.

Thank you soooo much for coming!  The kids were super excited and loved the visit!  We started our Dexter writing today.  Having Dexter visit really gives us an opportunity to work on specific skills (like turn taking) that we don’t always get a chance to do. Thanks again so much.  Lindsay Harrigan Sylvania Schools 2014
