Students who are gearing up for exams, stressed at the end of this semester, or just missing home, were able to unwind Wednesday with the well-trained, friendly dogs of the Therapeutic Paws of Canada.
Dakota Guindon, a social work student, said: “I have dogs at home, and I really miss them. So it’s great to spend time here today.”
Ilias and Alex, biology students, found that this event “puts our mind off the exams for a while.”
Maya and Prince are two stars of the show, both seven years old, well-trained service dogs. They provide their therapy services at nursing homes and to brain-damaged patients as well.
“They bring joy and brighten up spirits,” said John Good, a volunteer at Therapeutic Paws of Canada.
This successful event took place on April 8, and in case you have missed it, it will take place today, April 9 in Ambassador Auditorium’s Salon A, CAW Student Centre, from noon to 1:30 p.m.
This event is organized by Senate Student Caucus, along with Therapeutic Paws of Canada, supported by the office of the Dean of students and campus parking services.
