Jersey -

Looking for new ways to manage stress and find healthy outlets? Come spend some time with Jersey, Drexel’s very own campus therapy dog! 

When visiting Jersey please follow his office rules:

  1. Please do the following as you enter for the first couple of minutes:
    1. No talking to me
    2. No touching me
    3. No looking at me

As a therapy dog this rule helps me stay on my best behavior so I don’t expect attention from everyone who comes into my office. 

  1. Please do not stand in the door way and point at me, wave your arms or any gestures of the like. I get jealous and sometimes bark which gets me in trouble.
  2. Please respect my puppy breaks. I would love to see everyone all the time but sometimes I just need a little nap. If there is a sign on the door that says I am on a break please come back later or check my Facebook page for my next office hour.
  3. If you can, please avoid knocking on the door. I tend to bark hello when that happens, especially if I was sleeping!

Any questions, or requests for specific appointments please contact my handler, Kathryn Formica, Assistant Director of Recreation-Health, Fitness and Wellness, or 215-571-4555
