Dr. Dogs are always the most prominent ‘doctors’ in animal-assisted therapy. They have been strictly trained and assessed by professionals. Studies have shown that animals can make people generate ‘hormones of happiness’. Since last semester, uBuddies from Wellness and Counselling Centre, Office of Student Affairs, have invited Dr. Dogs to meet with students on campus. Booths and workshops aroused many students’ interests as they came to pat and take pictures with these friendly canines, as well as to have close contact with them in the workshops. Dr. Dogs will continue to cheer up our fellows in this semester.
