B.A.R.K.2GO takes place Wednesdays from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Library’s Flex Space and the UNC (2nd Floor).
In an effort to meet the demand for access to the B.A.R.K. dogs on campus, in 2015 we launched a new initiative called B.A.R.K.2GO! Thanks to funding from the Pitch This! Competition, B.A.R.K. volunteer students spearheaded a program that sees B.A.R.K. dogs stationed throughout the campus (versus uniquely in the B.A.R.K. Dog Therapy Lab).
B.A.R.K.2GO sees 180 UBC students, on average per session. Students typically spend between 5 and 20 minutes per visit.
Please note that these are not all hypoallergenic dogs and those with severe allergies should avoid coming near these areas.
