About the Event

"They (the students) have been asking for years to bring therapy dogs to Govs! Govs is planning a 'wellness week' during a stressful academic period this spring to offer healthy outlets for students, and they hope to have the Thursday of that week be "Therapy Dog Thursday". As a boarding school, many residential students miss the opportunity to connect with the pets they have at home (for many it is a coping strategy/stress reliever that they miss dearly). We hope to welcome you to Govs!
