Therapet Rocco at Queen Margaret University

September 24, 2015

 

One caring canine is helping to improve the lives of humans as a stress-busting pet. Edinburgh’s Queen Margaret University has become the first educational institution in Scotland to employ a dog on campus full-time to help relieve the stress of students. Rocco, a two-year-old labradoodle, is a full time “Therapet” helping soothe students who may feel anxious around the time of final exams and when submitting work. Rocco is a part of Canine Concern Scotland Trust’s Therapet Visiting Service.
