Delta Paws the Pressure
Would you like a Delta therapy dog to visit your workplace or campus?
Our Paws the Pressure program offers organisations and tertiary institutions a unique wellbeing experience.
Visits from our therapy dogs reduce stress and boost staff morale. Staff at all levels and from different areas will enjoy coming together over a positive discussion topic. There is even scientific evidence that interaction between humans and dogs enhances problem solving!
On campus, students will benefit from reduced stress levels during exam periods and enjoy meeting and bonding with other students during a dog visit.
Best of all, there’s no mess to clean up afterwards!
Paws the Pressure therapy dog visits can be tailored to coincide with:
- A period of organisational change
- A team building exercise
- An employee wellbeing day or other workplace event
- Student exam weeks or mental health awareness events
Booking a Paws the Pressure visit also contributes to your organisation's corporate social responsibility program. Proceeds from visits support Delta's therapy dog program in hospitals, aged care facilities, mental health units, palliative care, disability services, prisons and schools nationally, impacting the lives of more than 20,000 vulnerable Australians every week.
Here's what organisations have to say about a Paws the Pressure visit:
"We had PAWS come for R U OK? Day as a way to alleviate stress in a very high performing environment. I was blown away by the welcome the dogs got - over 200 people came to meet the dogs. Everyone was raving. I've had multiple requests for repeat visits already." - Price Waterhouse Coopers
Our Paws the pressure Day was amazing! Thank you so much for bringing yoru gorgeouls dogs in for a pat and cuddle. I've never seen so many happy and smiling faces in one place, it was sensational." - AGL
"It was a great way for us to continue to place emphasis on how all of us can and should manage wellbeing." - ASIC
"We have been going through significant workplace change and as part of our wellness program, Delta dogs really brought smiles to so many staff on their campus visit. Beautiful dogs and their owners had staff chatting all week with wonderful positive feedback." - Queensland University of Technology
"We booked Delta dogsfor two of our events during Social Inclusion Week. The dogs broke down barriers, created conversation and generally brought a whole bunch of joy to participants." - City of Ryde Council
"Having the dogs from Delta visit during study week was amazing! It was so nice to spend time interacting with the dogs. Everyone that was present looked really happy and I feel it was a great way for people to de-stress for a few hours. I would definitely recommend other university students playing with the dogs, as it really assisted me during a stressful exam period!" - Tanaya, University of Sydney
"I really appreciated the Delta therapy dog visit to our student accommodation. With exams coming up it's been really stressful and hard to relax, on top of that I was very sick with tonsillitis. A visit from the therapy dogs really cheered me up - I miss my own dog quite a bit. I was so sick I was only intending on staying for a few minutes, but the dogs made me feel a lot better so I ended up staying for over an hour." - Luke, University of Sydney
