They’re back by paw-pular demand.
As the busy summer travel season ramps up, Vancouver International Airport (YVR) has brought back its therapy dog program to help relieve some of the stress and anxiety that sometimes comes with flying.
After all, a little paws-itivity can go a long way – especially if you’re having a ruff travel day.
The four-legged friends are courtesy of the St. John Ambulance’s Dog Therapy Program, which previously accompanied its pack of furry friends at YVR.
“A huge round of a-paws to our airport community and our CXO [Chief Experience Officer], Eric Pateman, for coming together to bring this program back,” wrote YVR airport on its Twitter on Tuesday (July 4). “...We're so excited to bring these adorable pals back to help relieve some of the stresses of travel throughout the summer.”
The dogs will be hanging out at YVR’s domestic terminal on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time.
