To coincide with Mental Health Week (May 1 – 7, 2023), we’re hosting Dog Therapy Thursday at Lot 19.
Having a ruff day? Enjoy a canine therapy session from Vancouver ecoVillage* during your lunch hour. Research has proven that interacting with affectionate dogs can reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, lower blood pressure, and decrease the perception of pain. Canine therapy can offer anyone who is feeling stressed or overwhelmed the opportunity to relax through interaction with dogs.
We’re paws-ative you’ll enjoy the complimentary hot chocolate from Mink, entertainment from Canadian Idol star and multi-instrumentalist Stephen Lecky, and Dog Felting Station courtesy of MakeMobile!
Dog treat and accessory vendors will also be on-site.
