Meet Archer - Grand View's Therapy Dog!
Archer will spend his time in the counseling department in individual sessions. He will also be starting an anxiety group in the near future and will be found wandering campus looking for people to pet him. He will have regular student drop-in times around campus. As a certified therapy dog, he is welcomed to be pet anytime!
Benefits of a therapy dog are shown to reduced psychological and physiological stress, decrease negative emotion,
increase feelings of being supported, reduce blood pressure, contribute to a relaxed and soothing environment, and promote a sense of belonging on campus.
