Care dogs – Bath Spa University

Our #BathSpaDogs are here for you!

Take some time to relax and have a break from studying to chill out with a Bath Spa care dog. We have several accredited care dogs who can’t wait to meet you!

All Bath Spa care dogs are assessed and registered through Canine Concern, to make sure they are well behaved… most of the time at least! The team gets involved in appearances at events and host a range of drop-in sessions; we hope they complement and contribute to the wellbeing of the Bath Spa community, students and staff!

Information about upcoming events involving the #BathSpaDogs will be shared via social media, or you can contact
