Letting Sleeping Dogs Lie

Posted on by

I got to let several sleeping dogs lie during NIH’s “Puppycam” event, which was recently livestreamed on social media. In addition to interacting with these adorable Labrador retriever pups, which will be trained to help people with physical disabilities, including military veterans, the event was a great opportunity to discuss stress reduction, mindfulness, and pet therapy. It was also my pleasure to join in the conversation. Puppycam, held on February 13, 2020 at the NIH Clinical Center, was hosted by NIH and Hero Dogs, Silver Spring, MD.

I got to join in the four-legged fun with NIH’s “Puppycam” event on November 29, 2018 at the NIH Clinical Center. The event, which was live streamed for folks on Twitter, offered demonstrations from service dogs, therapy dogs, and puppies-in-training (including these adorable ones at rest).
