College Dogs bring smiles and warm furry hugs to schools in the Seattle Metropolitan area. The furry stress relievers are all certified/registered therapy dogs accompanied by their trained handlers.
Students away from family and friends, living in a new environment, facing tough academic challenges often feel depressed and anxious. A non-judgmental canine companion loves them for who they are as well as the tummy rubs, pats, and ear scratches. Dogs are an important part of responsible stress management.
Research shows that petting a dog increases endorphins, the hormones that give us a feeling of euphoria and increases good immune responses. Interacting with animals lowers cortisol, the stress hormone, and also decreases heart rate and blood pressure.
