Dogs help travelers – level 1

15-03-2024 15:00

Some people worry before flying. At Istanbul Airport, they have a great idea.

They have dogs there. The dogs help people feel better before flying. There are five dogs. Travelers can touch the dogs and talk to them. The dogs undergo special training. They learn to stay calm and not react to noises or people. Travelers are very happy.  They like the dogs very much. The airport is thinking of having five more dogs in the future.

Difficult words: undergo (to take part in something), training (when you are learning something new), calm (not nervous or angry).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

How do the specially trained dogs at Istanbul Airport help travelers feel more at ease before flying?
