Students posing with CAPS therapy dog

Our canine-assisted therapy has been temporarily suspended due to COVID19 and CAPS being remote. We will resume our canine assisted therapy when operations return to in-person services.

Individual Canine-Assisted Therapy

  • A student can request a CT through their therapist. If the therapist feels that it is clinically appropriate, the therapist can book the CT and include them in a session with a student.
  • Anyone who requests for a CT will be asked to sign a consent form where they acknowledge that they don’t have allergies or a fear of dogs.
  • There is no limit on how many times a student can book a CT as long as they have a scheduled session with their therapist/therapy group and the therapist feels that it is clinically appropriate.
  • CTs are present only when scheduled by therapists for individual or group sessions.
  • CTs cannot be scheduled as a session alone with the student. The dogs are just companions in a session with our therapist.
