Completing assignments and preparing for exams can be stressful. Take a break during the last week of the semester at the VU Library with the therapy dogs from 'Paws the Pressure'.

Accompanied by trained volunteers, therapy dogs are accredited dogs that provide the benefits of pet therapy with fun, laughter and play.

Campus therapy dog visits

VU Library is organising therapy dog team visits at three campus libraries:

  • City Flinders campus library
    When: Monday 17 October, 11.30am – 1pm
    Therapy dogs: Juno (Hungarian Vizsla), Chev (Border Collie), and Elmo (Bichon Frise Cross)
  • St Albans campus library
