Pet Respect visit Hull University for Exam Stress Relief
Jess and Gracie, Pet Respect’s Therapy Dogs, visited Hull University on Monday.
There are a growing number of universities and colleges who are using Animal Assisted Therapy to help students with exam stress.
A study in 2014 showed that interacting with dogs is as useful as conventional stress management programmes for anxiety and depression.
Stroking an animal increases immunity and lowers blood pressure.
See our Animal Assisted Therapy page for more information on how AAT can benefit a whole range of scenarios.
Pet Respect will be visiting Hull University again on the 24th and 31st May and the 6th June.
All times are 12pm-2pm, you can find them on the sports field
