Abstract

The Campus Canines Program (CCP) provides the University of Pittsburgh's community with the opportunity to interact with registered Canine Good Citizen dogs. My objective was to observe and describe the interaction between the dogs and the human participants/volunteers in the CCP at the University of Pittsburgh. The key question guiding this research is - what happens during an animal-assisted activity program that is carried out at a major university?
