Aberdeen Airport Employ Therapy Dogs to calm Nervous Fliers.

Aberdeen Airport has created a furtastic therapy method to help nervous fliers by employing dogs to help any passengers with any pre-flight jitters. 

 

 

This airport is the first in the UK to try out this new tactic and has released the cutest team of canine employees that will take part in this scheme. 

 

The program will officially take place this Bank Holiday weekend after a successful trial over the busy Christmas and New Year period.

Our fury friends will interact with passengers and airport staff along with their handlers to help any passengers who are uneasy about boarding a plane. 

 

The super group consists of 14 dogs in various shapes and sizes. Breeds include German Shepherds, Border Collies, Golden Retrievers, Beagles and Pugs.

This amazing opportunity has come to light thanks to the hard work of Therapet and Canine Concern of Scotland. 

 

Area representative for Aberdeenshire North Therapet, Diane Wood stated, ‘We are delighted to take the lead on this project and have the opportunity to work with Aberdeen Airport’.

‘The mere action of stroking a dog slows down the heartbeat and reduces blood pressure so they will be great help to anyone feeling nervous about their journey. The dogs work in pairs, for two hours, once a week and we plan to keep everybody updated about what dogs are visiting and what day’.  

 

Our fur legged friends will be lending a paw at Aberdeen Airport every Saturday for two hours and will be wearing adorable Hi-Vis jackets to make them for identifiable to the public.

‘All our dogs - and their owners- have undergone rigorous training and assessment to work in a variety of environments and the dogs are used to being stroked and petted and generously made a fuss of so they lap up the attention and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to interact with passengers and staff.’

Fraiser Bain, Duty Manager at Aberdeen Airport said, ‘ We’re excited to be the first airport in the UK to offer this service to passengers. As well as benefiting our visitors, we also recognise the benefit to the mental health and well being staff’.
