  • American University Student De-Stressing Day

Due to COVID-19, most facilities are closed to NCTD therapy dog visits, but we are scheduling training classes, virtual workshops, and in-person meet-and-greets as we prepare to resume visits this spring. As always, we will continue to focus on the safety of our clients and volunteers.

NCTD requests that all volunteers and participants in NCTD sponsored activities who are medically able receive a COVID vaccine prior to taking part in any therapy team visit, indoor class, open floor, evaluation or other event. The current CDC guidelines for masking and social distancing should be followed by attendees at all NCTD events being held indoors or outdoors.

  • American University, 4400 Mass Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20016


  • An existing NCTD experienced volunteer who serves as the NCTD point of contact for the event.
  • An NCTD handler and registered dog attending the event.

Registration is closed
In its mission to meet the behavior health needs of its students, the American University Counseling Center requested that NCTD teams visit with students to give students the opportunity to de-stress with the therapy dogs.   Over 200 students visited with the dogs and the event was a great success.  The University plans to conduct similar events on a bi-annual basis.
