Cadets Get a Visit from Therapy Dogs

In addition to their visits to USAFA, Go Team Therapy Dogs frequently visit other universities and businesses in Colorado. According to, a growing number of colleges across the country offer pet therapy programs that bring therapy dogs to students that need a break from the pressures of school.

Many college students are living away from home for the first time and appreciate the comfort brought by therapy dogs. Since the programs are typically volunteer-based, they usually do not cost colleges any money. 

In addition to petting and playing with the dogs, the cadets were also served free food in Arnold Hall. The event allowed the cadets to take a break from their busy schedules and socialize. To learn more about Go Team Therapy dogs, visit their website.
