Who Let the Dog Out? Implementing a Successful Therapy Dog Program in an Academic Law Library
The motivation for introducing a therapy dog to the Yale Law Library was twofold. Inarguably, attending law school can sometimes be stressful. Studies indicate that, particularly in the first year of law school, when newcomers are adjusting to new teaching methods, materials, external and internal expectations, and even geographic locations, students can experience elevated stress levels. The evidence that visits from therapy dogs have resulted in increased happiness, calmness, and overall emotional well-being was a strong factor in proposing the introduction of Monty, the therapy dog, to the stacks: the health and general happiness of the students in our school is of paramount importance to the Yale Law School and Library.
