Feeling ruff? Sussex to host doggy de-stress sessions

Calm down with a canine companion

The University of Sussex will be running ‘doggy de-stress’ sessions in the Falmer House common room on Friday 3rd February from 10:30am-11:30am.

The event will aim to encourage students to relax through spending time with therapy dogs. Such events have increased in popularity across universities in recent years, particularly near exam periods.

Run by a local charity, Sussex Caring Pets, the dog session will be split into 4 x 15-minute slots with 15 people taking part in each session.

The charity often provides therapy for those in need through the use of trained therapy support dogs and cats, visiting care homes, hospitals, hospices, schools and universities.

Students have been asked to prepare to have a short wait to see the dogs due to the popularity of these events, and to respect the dogs at all times.
