Pawse App — Aiding Students in Stress and Grief
The Pawse mobile app is an IOS app that connects stressed students to Pawse official therapy dogs on campus.
Our app connected users with nearby certified emotional-support dogs on campus, and users could also be following their favorite dogs. Pawse is a stress-relief initiative partnered with the on-campus counseling center, Cook Counseling, to bring on-campus therapy dogs to stressed students. Our features included dog scheduling for events, profiles, and a social presence for each dog in the Pawse program. It also included scheduling opportunities to interact with the dogs and their volunteers throughout the semester. We also featured a matching system to pair stressed students with support dogs that fit them and their needs the best.
