Therapet Rocco at Queen Margaret University

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 is a part of Canine Concern Scotland Trust’s Therapet Visiting Service.
