Therapy dogs

Bright and Beautiful Therapy Dogs of Houston shared Doodle with TWU Houston faculty, staff, and students on Monday 2 December 2019.  In conjunction with Houston Student Life (who provided delicious cookies), the Academic Resource Center helped all learn what certified therapy dogs do, how they are trained, and where we will see them around town, helping others.
