It is well known that student interaction with therapy dogs can help with many of the issues and stressors that college students face. These include reducing anxiety, lowering blood pressure, easing depression, stimulating memory and problem-solving skills, and allowing students to feel more at ease and open to social behavior.
Landmark College is proud to have a team of nine (eight active and one emeritus) therapy dogs on campus each week. Owned and handled by Landmark College staff members, the therapy dogs interact with students in residence halls, the library, the student center, and the athletic center.
Our therapy dog team holds “office hours” each week, attends programs, and holds “PuppyPalooza” sessions during final exam week.
