Abstract

Everett loves dogs - particularly his own dog who also works as a therapy dog. In their therapy work together, Everett became concerned about the emotional well-being of his dog due to the stress of it. In this talk, Everett not only shares findings about the stress levels of dogs - but why it should matter to all of us.

Everett is a current senior at Challenge Early College High School and he studied the idea of how to measure the emotional responses of therapy dogs - and why it matters. Everett plans to attend Texas A&M University in the fall to study Animal Science.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
