The PAWS Your Stress program is offered by a caring team of students, researchers, professionals, and most important, volunteer therapy dogs and handlers!
The program was founded in 2015 by the Office of the Centennial Enhancement Chair in One Health and Wellness at the University of Saskatchewan. It is offered today in partnership with Peer Health and the St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog program.
A ZOOM visit is an opportunity to see and say hi to some of your favorite St. John Ambulance therapy dogs and handlers, hear stories about what they have been up to, and share stories yourself if you want. Being online also offers us the opportunity to reintroduce some of our retired campus therapy dogs and therapy dogs in training! And...we may even have a special feline guest or two!
Students, staff and faculty are welcome to drop into to any ZOOM session for as long or as short as you want, and in as many ZOOM rooms as you want over the hour long session. You can register for the visits at: therapydogs.ca/therapy-dog-zoom-meeting
