Take a paws in your day with our visiting therapy dogs
Life can be a juggling act. Keeping multiple balls in the air with your home commitments, university studies, and social life, among other things, can be overwhelming and stressful. So it’s important to look after your mental health and wellbeing.
With this in mind, Deakin Library encourages you to take a paws in your day and stop by to see our visiting therapy dogs. They love pats and their handlers love conversation.
Bookings not required, just drop-in – smiles guaranteed.
Come and meet dogs Bailey and Murphy along with their handlers Mel and Diane on Monday 31 July from 12–1pm.
The loveable Tucker will be visiting along with his handler Barbara on Tuesday 1 August from 1–2.30pm.
Why therapy dogs?
Evidence suggests that interacting with therapy dogs can help to provide comfort, reduce stress and ease anxiety. We’ve invited the dogs to visit as part of Deakin’s Mind Matters 2023 activity – find out what else is on around campus through the Mind Matters page.
