Stress Management With Man’s Best Friend

The Pan American Games which are currently taking place in Toronto have hit upon an innovative method of helping athletes relax away from the cauldron of competition.

They have recruited the services of 125 dogs of various breeds around the Athlete’s Village for some stick fetching and play should they feel the need to relax and refocus their attention on their performances.

The aim is to relieve any feelings of stress and homesickness the dogs offer a unique level of support and love regardless of language or where the participants originate from.

A new spin on the well-known “Take Your Dog To Work Day”!

Makes you think, doesn’t it?
