Delta Paws the Pressure
Would you like a Delta therapy dog to visit your workplace?
Our Paws the Pressure program offers organisations a unique staff 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! 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
Alternatively, talk to us about setting up a regular office visiting program.
Here's what employees have to say about a Paws the Pressure visit:
'We were all thrilled to have Indy visit the office for the first time today. Indy is a beautiful chocolate Labrador and lit up the room with her great energy. Thanks Delta Therapy Dogs for making our Friday even better!" - Staff member, Pareto Phone
"We had the best time. Norman especially was a hit and is now being spoken about in the halls with great affection. Antar was also a beautiful, gentle boy. Such a wonderful initiative and we are sure we will do it again." - Claire, Law Society of NSW
"It was a great way for us to continue to place emphasis on how all of us can and should manage wellbeing." -Elizabeth, ASIC
"Maybe we need to have a 'bring your fur kids to work day'. I was on a high for the rest of the afternoon!" - Staff member, Sydney University

Delta Therapy Dogs on campus
Our therapy dogs are regular visitors to universities and TAFEs around Australia to support students' mental health and wellbeing, particularly during stressful exam periods. Visits can also be planned to coincide with tertiary open days or other campus events.
Here's what students say:
"Having the dogs from Delta visit during study week was amazing! It was so nice to spend 2 hours 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
"The dogs were so cool. I am really missing my dog and my family and this really helps a lot." - Student, Torrens University.
"I really enjoyed and 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 chronic tonsillitis. A visit from the therapy dogs really cheered me up - I miss my own dog quite a bit, and they're just very lovely and loving animals. I was so sick I was only intending on staying for a few minutes, but going there made me feel a lot better so I ended up staying for over an hour." - Luke, University of Sydney
