EMILY CARR UNIVERSITY WELCOMES VANCOUVER ECOVILLAGE THERAPY DOGS TO CAMPUS!

Aboriginal Gathering Place & Charles H. Scott Gallery, 1399 Johnston St. GRANVILLE ISLAND

Past research has shown that interacting with an affectionate dog can reduce stress and anxiety, and improve mood. Based on these benefits, many universities have introduced doggy de-stress sessions to their campuses. These sessions offer students a chance to interact with dogs, volunteers and other students in a relaxing setting. Emily Carr University realizes just how important this is, and is now bringing the Vancouver ecoVillage dogs to campus! 

WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 23rd

11:30 - 1:00 PM

Vancouver ecoVillage has a rigorous therapy-dog training program, which requires several months of training and testing. The therapy dogs are re-tested annually to ensure they keep displaying temperament that shows confidence, good manners and sociability with other dogs and people. The dogs meet strict health requirements, are well-groomed and gentle at all times. They even do tricks to entertain and amuse. Most of all, these special dogs and their handlers have a therapeutic and calming influence on people in the community who have the pleasure of meeting them. Emily Carr University is excited about welcoming these therapy dog teams on campus and can't wait to meet them!
