DOGGY

DE-STRESS

YORK HOUSE SCHOOL

9 MAY 2018

Our Therapy Dogs are ready to help de-stress YORK HOUSE SCHOOL students with lots of warm furry hugs and kisses. The students are seeking a caring and supportive environment during their exam period to alleviate stress. Recent studies have proven that animal-assisted therapy helps decrease blood pressure, cortisol and reduce overall anxiety. These sessions offer a chance to interact with dogs, volunteers and others in a relaxing setting. York House School realizes just how important this is, and is now bringing the Vancouver ecoVillage dogs to campus to celebrate DOGGY DESTRESS DAY!

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. 

COME MEET OUR THERAPY DOGS - THEY GIVE LOVE!
