Our therapy dogs are here with their owners who are Carleton University staff and faculty, and they have all been trained and evaluated to become official Carleton Therapy Dog team members.The Therapy Dog program is based on research in animal-assisted intervention and both the dog and the handler are here to comfort and provide support to help you thrive as a university student.
