WATCH VIDEO - Past research has shown that interacting with an affectionate dog can reduce stress and anxiety, and improve mood. These sessions offer even employees a chance to interact with dogs, volunteers and other staff in a relaxing setting. (Read about the research on the  impact therapy dogs are making at the University of British Columbia). Methanex  Corporation has invited Vancouver ecoVillage to offer dog therapy to their valued staff members.

Friday September 21st

11:30 - 1:30 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.
