What UNLV students are saying about the Love Dogs

 

The Love Dog animal therapy team visited the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) over two days this week for our second visit. The event was hosted by the Lied Library on campus and encouraged students and faculty to come visit with the dogs to relieve the pressures and stresses of final exam week.

The event is always so successful that it has become a twice-annual gathering and over a thousand students come by each session to greet the dogs and handlers. Not only does petting a calm dog lower one’s blood pressure and steady heart rates, it is fuel for the soul. Students came into the room tired and stressed and frustrated, but soon all we saw were smiles. Great joy filled the room as our nine dog teams did their thing. Here is just some of the feedback we received.

The Love Dogs have been booked to visit UNLV into 2015!
