Pet therapy at Team

Team Consulting

Company update

Spring has arrived at our barn!

Rob Fernall, our Senior Human Factors Consultant, is taking care of two orphaned lambs. In order to provide a little pet therapy at the barn, Rob’s family brought in the lambs for their afternoon feeding. We all enjoyed the interaction with these beautiful animals and enjoy a break in the sunshine. But we’re not the only people using animals for relief.

Pet therapy is gaining ground in healthcare. In Florida one therapy dog has been providing visits for over a decade. Research is supporting that animals provide stress relief for people in many situations including travelers in airports, university students during exam time and cancer patients.

After the feeding was over we were all feeling very relaxed and ready to jump back into work.
