One male student hugged BaileyRose several times cause he missed his dogs (4) so much. At another time, (same student) out of no where, he said, “this sure is great therapy all right”. Another female student cried as she was petting BaileyRose cause she was missing her dog so much. I had asked several students if they felt having therapy dogs there actually helped them,—it was an over whelming YES! Also, ALL the students were so polite and caring around the dogs. We love going to Carroll University.
Four BARCC teams had a wonderful time today on the campus of UW – Washington County in West Bend. We spent 2 hours over the lunch hour with the students, giving them much appreciated distractions from their studies. We know that petting a dog works wonders in reducing stress (and even blood pressure)! The teams loved it – especially the loving attention given by the kind and polite students who stopped by.
