Our Therapy Dog Program focusing on Mental Health Wellness has proven that interacting with affectionate dogs can reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, lower blood-pressure and even decrease the perception of pain. Based on these benefits, many universities and companies have introduced Doggy De-stress sessions on location. These petting sessions offer students and staff who are feeling stressed and overwhelmed, the opportunity to increase socialization through interaction with dogs, volunteers and others in a relaxing setting.
