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.
