OKLAHOMA state university established pet therapy initiative takes proactive approach

University’s pet therapy initiative takes proactive approach Oklahoma State University has established Pete’s Pet Posse, a group of 13 trained therapy dogs used throughout campus to help students, faculty and staff stay more relaxed. Although the dogs respond to difficult situations, the bulk of the work is proactive, as they are used to promote a sense of well-being at any time. The dogs are trained through the OSU veterinary school, and each must maintain regular veterinary care. The Bark online (9/17)
