YVR Launches Less Airport Stress Initiative (LASI)

Let's put our paws together and welcome YVR's Ambassador Dogs!

Today, we celebrated the launch of the Less Airport Stress Initiative (LASI) with an event filled with puppy love! This new program that has YVR Ambassador Dogs throughout the terminal will provide everyone with a new way to deal with stress and anxiety – from school, work or travel!

We partnered with St. John Ambulance’s Therapy Dog program to bring seven furry four-legged friends into the terminal. Molly, Bailey, Mira, Norman, Grover, Kermode and Soda will be in the terminal accepting pets and cuddles Mondays through Fridays, from 11:00a.m. to 1:00p.m. You can identify them easily with their YVR branded leashes and St. John Ambulance bandanas. Spot them hanging out with a dog handler and a YVR Green Coat volunteer.

This family will continue to grow, as we continue to expand this service to accommodate week nights and weekend travellers and employees.

So next time you’re at YVR, stop by and say hello to our Ambassador Dogs. If you’re having a ruff day, our doggy friends are here to turn your frown upside down!
