In 2018 we had the opportunity to interview Sara Dodd the founder of the Phoenix Canine Initiative. The Phoenix Canine Initiative is a pet therapy service that works with children and adults experiencing different levels of stress within the London and St.Thomas Ontario area. In the interview Sara talks about the services she offers and also shares more information about what pet therapy is.
Pet therapy is something I’ve personally tried during my undergraduate years and I loved it. During exam time we had a local service come on campus and let students play and engage with the pet therapy dogs. It definitely helped with the stress that I was experiencing at the time. If you’re interested in learning more about pet therapy and the service Sara offers you can check out the interview Pet Therapy with Phoenix Canine Initiative.

The idea of Throwback Thursdays (#TBT) started because we want to share this past content and some memorable moments too. When it comes to the mental health landscape, some things have stayed the same, while others continue to evolve.
