oh come on now...what's so wrong with students petting some puppers to ease their stress levels ?? it happens all the time with sick children and seniors and it helps..

I remember when my dad was dying of cancer (and suffering greatly) my pupper being so protective of him and staying with him day and night helped him a lot...and my pupper (and cats when I had them) helped me during many dark periods of my life..

what a dumb thing to complain about..

Man, imagine being so bitter that you get triggered over students petting dogs?!?! Like dogs! They are the best, and they do help to relieve stress! Why are some people such snowflakes, that they can't let other people enjoy themselves, jeez.

Truth, maybe you need to utilize this program. Getting so offended by what other people do must be very stressful for you, petting a dog may help :up:

I think its a cool idea, just gets peoples minds off of life and its stresses and let them be human for a bit.

I get truth's point, but I don't think it really applies in this case. If they brought the dogs in to relieve stress levels because of Trump's latest Tweet, then yeah, I'd totally agree with his post.

Well ... my little em path of a step daughter has taken that therapy animal defense to the point she won't wash her clothes ...

Stop giving kids reasons to not do the things that we , as adults , have to do otherwise our little prince and princesses will STARVE ..

Screw the "quiet rooms because words hurt" .. Jam "puppers" and " fur babies" (*bleep* I hate that ) and start bringing kids to REALITY ...

Stress is real , it won't go away , so it's best to teach children about it and how to deal with it rather than harbour a false sense of safety ..
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

You are right, stress is very real and people need to learn proper and healthy coping techniques to deal it. Some people meditate, exercise, take a bath, and hey.. some might even spend time with a pet.

They did the same thing at Okanagan College about a month ago, panago pizza dropped off 70 boxes of pizza and somebody brought in a bunch of pups for people to enjoy. I see no wrong in it, and for some people midterms or final exams can be one of the most stressful periods of your life, imagine your career and ambitions hinging on 1 exam.

Well that would work except then they would get the munchies and they are not allowed to call skip the dishes to order food on campus.

Ah, quit yer howlin' and barkin'. The truth is the B.A.R.K. program’s been on campus since 2012, and I don’t see where anybody here’s ever lifted a hind leg over it before you did today.

Want a biscuit? Need an ear scratch? Then, down boy, and read this:
