About Wyatt the Wonder Dog

Meet Wyatt... a dog who wonders about everything

My name is Wyatt - they call me The Wonder Dog because I wonder about everything.

Like your students, I have a hard time sitting still and listening. I have to practice really hard on this.

 I’d love to get to know you and learn how I can help your students. If you'll grab a dog treat and click the button, I'll tell you more!
