The most recent BYOD Day was held last March 14 and attracted over 300 visitors who came to see the 14 participating dogs.
The organizers ensure that all dog participants have updated vaccinations. Female dogs in estrus (heat) are not allowed to join.
BOx representatives said they plan to hold a BYOD Day four times per academic year – one every midterms and finals exam season of both semesters. The BYOD Day on Oct. 10 will be the first for Academic Year 2016-2017 and is expected to be attended by more humans and canines. The organizers would like the BYOD Day to be acknowledged by the administration as a key aspect of the school’s community wellness program and with dogs (and other animal companions) being regarded as partners in mutual healing.
