 SMOOCH A POOCH II 

WATCH VIDEO - 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. Read about the research on the impact therapy dogs are making at the University of British Columbia. These sessions offer a chance to interact with dogs, volunteers, and others in a relaxing setting. UBC Arts Undergraduate Society realizes just how important this is, and is now bringing the Vancouver ecoVillage dogs to campus to celebrate AMS FIRST WEEK! 

SMOOCH A POOCH II

Wednesday September 4th

12:00 - 2:00 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. AMS First Week is excited about welcoming these therapy dog teams on campus and can't wait to meet them!

COME MEET OUR THERAPY DOGS - THEY GIVE LOVE!
