Pet therapy dogs: a calming canine caravan comes to Concordia
UPDATE: The November 28 Webster Library pet-therapy dog visit has been cancelled.
Finals can be stressful. And while there are lots of ways to beat exam stress, from exercise to meditation, is there anything more comforting than a furry friend with a wagging tail?
Webster Library (outside LB-237)
- Wednesday, November 22 – 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- Tuesday, November 28 – 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (CANCELLED)
Vanier Library (outside VL-101)
- Thursday, November 30, – 12 to 2 p.m.
- Wednesday, December 6 – 12 to 2 p.m.
Similar sessions have been held successfully at McGill University; the University of California, Berkeley; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign; the University of Wisconsin; and Yale University to help reduce anxiety and lift spirits.
Concordia's own therapeutic furry friend visits were featured on CBC in spring 2016.
All of the dogs have been vaccinated and will be on four-foot leashes.
