    Therapy animals are a huge relief to kids it helps relax and express the emotions one another. Students are debating on whether not to allow therapy dogs into Rivera Middle School. This would be a relevant idea because trained dogs are increasingly being used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud, for autistic kids being with a horse improves their ability to complete to courses and to express their emotions, being with a calm and friendly dog lowers blood pressure and reduces feelings of stress. Some people think that having therapy animals is a bad idea because it’s too messy and too much responsibility. This essay will prove that it’s certainly not the case students should have therapy animals to have the support you need to feel better in yourself.
    First, trained dogs are increasingly being used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud. In the text the author talks about how students are able to read aloud with relaxation because of trained dogs support. With a dog by their side, the stress some students experience when they read in front of a teacher tends to just melt away. They provide much of the same emotional and social support that we get from having people in our lives, like friends and family, who are close to us. Not only do therapy animals help you feel comfortable but it may make things easier to connect and participate in things you can’t.
    Next, for autistic kids being with a horse improves their ability to complete to courses and to express their emotions. In the text it states “And for autistic individuals especially, time with a horse improves their ability to respond to directions and to express their emotions.” It may be that the animals helped to act as a type of Communication Bridge, giving children with autism something to talk about with others. Past research shows that pets can provide typically developing children with emotional support. Being there for the autistic kids make them see the good in their selves and how to react with others too.
    Lastly, being with a calm and friendly dog lowers blood pressure and reduces feelings of stress. In the text the author talks about having a open dog by your side releases stress and sicknesses. Happy talk or laughter around animals releases hormones in humans that lower blood pressure, and make animals feel better too. People recovering from heart attacks and blood pressure recover more quickly and survive longer when there is a pet at home. Although, some people believe having therapy animals is too much but they help and improve many effects to humans and are totally worthwhile of our time spending with them.

    To summarize, this would be a relevant idea because trained dogs are increasingly being used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud, for autistic kids being with a horse improves their ability to complete to courses and to express their emotions, being with a calm and friendly dog lowers blood pressure and reduces feelings of stress. If you feel therapy animals are a huge impact on humans you should tell the administrator to have many more animals in local and nearby places to go and see a calm and cheerful place to be surrounded by.

  2. Do you think that River middle school should have therapy animals? I do! I say that because some animals are able to keep kids calm. Another reason is some children need special help. The last reason is when kids have stress before a test they can use that pet to release some of their stress. Some people think we shouldn’t have animals in our school because they might be scared. My essay will prove why we should have animals in our school (for therapy reasons)!
    First I say that some animals can keep kids calm because when they get to mad they can pet the animal. In the video “Service dogs help Autistic student find their voice” the little boy had a break down so the dog went over to him to calm him down. That was a good idea because the little boy was calm and he was not worried about the thing that made him have a break down! Read on to see how some children that need special help can use a therapy animal.
    The second reason is that children that need special help should be able to have therapy dogs. I say that because in the video “Service dogs help Autistic students find their voice” they showed a little boy that did not like to talk but when they got the dog the boy started saying “hello” and “goodbye”. The therapy dog helped the little boy talk and if we get a therapy dog at our school a lot more kids will learn how to say certain words. In the next paragraph you will learn about how therapy animals release stress.
    Lastly therapy pets can release stress from children. In the video “Therapy dogs help college students De-stress during final exams” they showed people petting a dog before the exam. As you can see the information that I gave you reminds you why there should be therapy pets in my school. But some people wouldn’t like the idea because they might be scared of the animals we pick. I also agree that we shouldn’t have animals because I know I’m going to be scared of certain animals .
    As you can see this is why we should have therapy pets in our school. The first evidence was that animals are able to keep kids calm, some animals can give kids special help, and animals can release stress. Now you can go to your school and ask the can your school have therapy pets.

    Having Therapy Pets in your school is a great idea, but do you think that they should have them in your school? At Rivera Middle School, they are deciding on whether or not to have a therapy pet. They should have a therapy pet for three reasons, first they can help people stay healthy, second therapy dogs can help people feel more comfortable, last they can have an effect on others. Some people say that a dog can’t help people with nothing, and that they’re just dogs. This essay would explain that dogs are more than just dogs, and that they can help with a lot of things.
    The first reason why Rivera should have a therapy pet is because they can help people stay healthy. In the text it stated, “Being with a calm and friendly dog lowers blood pressure and reduces feelings of stress.” Also it stated, “When we reduce the stress in our lives, we’re healthier. As you can see, having a therapy pet is a good way to keep stress away. Once when I had a dog, he always used to be all up under me and that was a way for him to make sure that I never got mad. Now you are going to understand how dogs can help people feel more comfortable.
    The second reason why Rivera should have a therapy pet is because they can help people feel more comfortable. For example, as I was reading it said something like dogs are used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud. Also it said something like when you talk in front of your teacher you wouldn’t stress because you’ll have a dog right there by your side. As you can see, dogs can help many students feel better when it’s time to talk in front of their teachers. It was a time when I got in trouble and I was going to get in trouble, but I had my dog next to me and in magically I did get in trouble.
    The last reason why Rivera should have a therapy pet is because they can have an effect on others. When listening to a video titled Therapy Dogs Help College Students De-stress during Final Exams it said something like when kids seen that a dog was doing very well even without eyes, they knew that they were able to do well also. And if someone sees that a dog can do something that they can do, they’ll try to do it also. As you can see, dogs can have a big effect on people. Once when my dog jumped over a pile of snow and didn’t get hurt, I tried to do it and landed right into the pile. Some people think that animals cannot have an effect on human, but they are wrong because those dogs had an effect on the college students so that they know they’re able to do well.
    So to sum it up, Rivera Middle School should have a therapy pet. Therapy pets can help people stay healthy, help people feel more comfortable, and they can have a great effect on people. So go to your school principal and tell him/her that having a therapy pet would be a great idea.

  4. Should Rivera Middle School have therapy animals for the students.
    Did You know that animals help people cope with their feelings? People are wondering should Rivera Middle School have therapy animals for students. Many people think they should for lots of reasons. First, therapy horses help people who cant walk feel a walking sensation. Second, they help students with special needs talk . Finally, they help people feel a little better when their in the hospital. Some people think Rivera Middle School shouldn’t have therapy dogs. This essay will show you that them people are wrong.

    First therapy horses help people who cant walk feel a walking sensation. In the text it states, “For someone accustomed to being in a wheelchair, says Chitwood, sitting on a horse as it’s led around a ring creates the sensation of walking. Some disability kids who cant walk feel like their missing a part of life by not walking and riding the horse makes them feel like they are. If I was a child who couldn’t walk I would and horseback riding made me feel like I can I would love horses. Next, you will see how therapy dogs help autistic students.

    Second, they help students with special needs talk. In the video called Service Dogs Help Autistic Students Find Their Voice a teacher had a student that shes been trying to get them to say Hi and Bye for 3 years but now when the dog came he says Hi and Bye to everyone. The dog encourages students to talk. I have an autistic cousin and she didn’t talk at one point but when she got a dog she talks all the time and cant stop.

    Finally, they help people feel a little better when their in the hospital. In the article it says, when Lulu T brought her dog to the hospital she brighten everyones day. If you with an animal showing you affection and your in a comfortable setting you will feel at ease. When I was in the hospital I was so sad until my dog came and everything changed. Some bitter people don’t want animals to come to Rivera as a therapy animal. They don’t want to be happy but there’s more people on board with bringing in the animals.

    As, you can see we definitely should bring in therapy animals. From these three reasons therapy horses help people who cant walk feel a walking sensation, they help students with special needs talk, and they help people feel a little better when their in the hospital. If you agree talk to your principal or the board of education.

  5. Should Rivera Middle School have therapy animals for school? By: Kiara Simmons
    Therapy animals often help kids in need and people with issues to be calm and relaxed. Therapy animals are there to help people and to let them be their self. Rivera Middle School should have therapy animals. Therapy animals will help people with anger issues calm down. They will help mentally challenged children and people feel welcome and calm to express their emotions. Therapy animals will make people feel comfortable to do whatever they are afraid to do like do a presentation in front of the class. Some people would disagree because people are allergic to some animals or their fur. Other than that there wouldn’t be a problem and to solve this problem tell people to write down what animal they are allergic to and separate those people in groups and have them with a different animal.
    Most people face anger issues because of something that’s bothering them and they don’t say anything on it so the anger builds up. By having a therapy animal this calms them down and help with letting their feelings out. The text “Animal Influence” tells us about a boy who had anger issues and when he did he handed his teacher a ticket saying he could be excused whenever he is angry. This boy goes to see the dog to calm his nerves and express his feelings. These animals are also good for helping the mentally challenged children.
    The mentally challenged people sometimes feel alone as if nobody cares and they need comfort so why not seek it from an animal. Animals are loving creatures that will accept you for who you are. Therapy animals help these children by letting them know someone cares. The animals helps them feel welcome and feel just like other kids their age. Mentally challenged children have melt downs too and need to be calmed down. By having therapy animals the mentally challenged can express their feelings and be relaxed. Animals also help people get over fears.
    Say as if you had a presentation that you have to read in front of the whole class but you’re a very shy person. An animal by your side will boost your confidence. Animals will help you get over any fear you have like taking a test. Like in the article “Animal Influence” it says “Trained dogs are increasingly being used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud”. This is stating that animals help with shyness. Some people would disagree because animals could bite you and scratch but the animals will be trained so there wouldn’t be a problem. Animals can make you feel better about anything like a test. If you think that you failed an animal will make you feel better about it. Lastly if you are sick they will make you feel a little better and can probably do a better job than adults.
    Therapy animals could be a big help. They can make you feel better than others would. If you think that there should be therapy animals at your school suggest it to your principal.

    Animal Influence

    What if you can have a Fluff ball of a dog so every time that you feel that you are about to blow up you can calm yourself down? Across the world there are many facilities applying therapy dogs or service dogs. In the environment such as Schools. Service Pets allow kids to process situations when they might flare. In the article Animal Influence showed how a boy was about to flare up but the dog allowed him process the situation and go back into the classroom environment “Doggy playtime is good for the mind body and soul extra tool to help them to deal with their stress.” “Therapy dogs, notes Melson, are used in all kinds of situations, from classroom s for the learning disabled to long term care facilities where people receive personal aid medical assistance around the clock.” But people are faking their dogs as personals dogs raising red flags and endangering real service dogs. “People passing of their personal pet as service dogs to take them in restaurant airports etc.” This essay will show why we should have service dogs in Rivera Middle School.

    First and Foremost, Therapy dogs should be allowed in Rivera Middle School because it allows kids to cope in different situations when they might blow up and make a mistake that they will regret also it allows kids to deal with the daily stress that the Rivera Middle School Students deal with on a daily. According to “Therapy Dogs Help College Students De-Stress During Final Exams.” Doggy Playtime is good for the mind body and soul it is an extra tool to help to them to deal with their stress.” This piece of evidence shows with the help of therapy pets any every day daily stress that anyone faces from ages 1-100000 so anybody can use therapy pets to relive daily stress. Thus therapy pets should be allowed in rivera middle school to help kids relive stress.

    Secondly, Therapy pets should be allowed in rivera middle school because students that do not really talk that much can learn how to communicate and be way more social and learn how to be more open to conversations and potential friendships in life. For example the text states” The 2nd half year olds is teaching the students in Elizabeth Olson austic class how to commutate with other” This piece of evidence shows why therapy dogs should be allowed in rivera middle school because it will help out with kids that don’t talk of might get bullied to be able to branch and talk to somebody that might can help them with there current problem. Thus Rivera middle school should have therapy dogs because it allows kids to communicate that you never have heard there voice in years of being in the same class.

    Thirdly, Therapy dogs should be allowed in school but what about kids with allergies but there are ore then dogs almost any domesticated animal can be trained to be a therapy pet cat bird etc. But I believe dogs can be the most help and provide the most help and guidance with any age and you can train your own dog to be a therapy dog for you or in Ms.Olson case to help kids. Thus service pets should be allowed in rivera because they can help kids commincate and help them with strees that they face everyday.

    To conclude, Service dogs should be allowed in rivera because They help kids commincate, They help anybody deal with stress, and almost any domintacated animal can be a therapy animal. So go ask you principle for therapy animals go to the board of education.

  7. Therapy Dogs
    Should Rivera Middle School have Therapy animals for the students? The problem is that some schools have therapy animals that help control the students feelings when there upset. Some schools don’t agree with the idea, but honestly, we should have therapy animals. If you pet or play with the dog it will reduce stress, It can help the students learn too because it is the best leaning material, and it helps the students relax when they are upset or angry. The point is that there should be Therapy dogs in our school.
    You’re probably asking how playing with or petting a dog would help reduce stress. Well, showing the studies getting your mind off of things can help reduce stress, like playing with a dog, going out for a run or walk can help reduce stress. Which I learned from the video in YouTube; Therapy Dogs help College Students De-Stress during Final Exams. However, if you want to learn more you can just go to that video and it will explain more about the dogs.
    Also, not only does it reduce stress, it can help the students learn too, because dogs are the best material for learning. In another video it showed that there were kids that were learning while they were playing with the dogs. The video was called, Service dogs help Autistic students find there their voice/ Patch video. It was about how kids who were learning while they were playing with the dogs. There were sentences that said what they wanted the dogs to do, so, in the meantime the kids were learning.
    Lastly, it helps the students relax when they are angry or upset. There was a boy named jack that lived in Albert Lea, Minn, he was at school that is when his anger began to rose and got out of his seat and gave the teacher a ticket. He left to go see poet the dog. 15 minutes petting and playing with the dog he was fully relaxed and went back to is classroom. The dog helped jack letting out his feelings, and process the situation. This came from the article, Animal Influence that explains the power of therapy dogs. Even though some schools wouldn’t want a dog because the dogs would be loud and the classroom would be distracted. But, if there were no dogs, the kids that are angry and upset, would be a bigger distraction, and the loud noise wouldn’t be a problem because they don’t make that much noise.
    As you can see, Therapy Dogs wouldn’t be much of a problem because they are trained to help kids. So that is why Rivera Middle school should have Therapy animals because Petting or playing with a dog can reduce less stress, it can help the students learn too, because they are the best learning material, they can help when a student is upset or angry. And you can help by making sure you have Therapy animals at your school, so the therapy animals can help your school too.

    Do you think that Rivera Middle School should have a therapy dog? Some people think that it’s a bad idea when others think that it’s a good idea. When you think about if Rivera had a therapy dog all the students that is under a lot of stress or have problems in school can just go to the therapy dog for help. Some good reasons you should is because being with a calm and friendly dog can lowers blood pressure another reason is because dogs can make people happier. One more reason is because dogs can make you more comfortable about what you are doing. Some people might think it’s a bad idea because some students may be afraid of the dog. But their shouldn’t be anything to be afraid of the dog because therapy dogs are calm and relaxed.
    One reason you should have a dog in Rivera Middle School is because it reduces a lot of stress. Being with a calm and friendly dog lowers blood pressure. In text it states that when we reduce the stress in our lives were healthier. What this shows is that if you’re under a lot of stress and you need someone for help you could go to a therapy dog. If I was stressing I would go to a therapy dog to talk to and play with to make me more relaxed.
    Another reason you should have a therapy dog in Rivera Middle is because it makes you happier if you sad you can go to a therapy dog to cheer you up. In the text it here was a student name jack that was always angry and he would go to the therapy dog poet to calm him down so he came in the office where poet was at sat down and then poet went right over to him and within ten seconds jack was smiling and within fifth teen minutes was able to talk about his feelings and go back to class. If I am angry I would try going to a therapy dog for help.
    One more reason you should have a therapy dog in Rivera Middle School is because it make you more comfortable about what you are doing. In the text it states even in school libraries she says trained dogs are increasingly being used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud. Therapy dogs can make you more confident if I was not comfortable about doing something I would go to a therapy dog to help me. Some people might think it’s a bad idea because some people might not like dogs but it’s a good idea because therapy dogs can help you when you need help.
    So do you think Rivera Middle School should have a therapy dog? A therapy dog can help you if you’re uncomfortable or sad or even is under a lot of stress. The dog can help the students with a uncomfortable situation. That’s why it would be a good idea to have a therapy dog in school.

  9. Should Schools Have Therapy Pets?
    Wouldn’t it be nice to have a pet in your school that you can go and see when you are feeling down? Well I think Schools should have a therapy pet because if you’re feeling stressed out then you can go and see the therapy dog to help relieve some of the stress students have, Also in the libraries a therapy dog can help search out books for students that are having trouble and can’t find the books they need, and lastly therapy pets increase happiness and they help autistic students find their voice.

    If you’re feeling stressed out then you can go see a therapy pet to help relieve some of your stress. Therapy pets relieve stress because they make some students feel at home and they forget about everything that stressed them out and they have a little break from everything. Like when college students have to study for exams and worry about writing like 10 page essays. Also when they have their 15 or 20 minute break from study and exams then they can go play with the dog or whatever pet they have in the school.

    When we have library if the librarian is busy and can’t help a student find a book the need then the pet that’s in the library can help the student find its way over to the bookshelf that has the book that the kid is looking for and then it can sit down to let the kid know that their book is over in this area. Also when it’s time to quiet down the dog can bark letting the kids know that it’s time to be quiet and stop talking and listen. When the have kids free time the dog can around looking at everyone’s computer and make sure they are on the right websites and not doing anything bad on the computer.

    Therapy pets help autistic kids find their voice. Since autistic kids don’t really know how to cope with things properly then they have meltdowns. But with a therapy dog the child can understand how to deal with their feelings. Like in a video I saw a teacher was helping a student then another student started having a meltdown. So the therapy dog that was in there look at the lady and the lady said go then the he dog walked over to the child and started playing with him and then the child started to calm down and was laughing and being happy again.

    Therapy pets can be a great help in classrooms, and for students and teachers like when they help our autistic students stop having meltdowns and when they help in our library they can help us find the books we need and lastly when we are feeling stressed they help us feel at home and gives a little break from everything. So that’s why all schools should have a therapy pet. So go and convince your school to have a therapy pet.

    Argument Essay
    Do you think having a therapy at Rivera Middle School is a good idea? Some people think it is a bad idea. However most believe it is a good idea. If you think about it if you have a therapy pet its presence will calm a child down that has a bad temper. The therapy dogs can help people with disabilities. They also take stress off of kids. Most people believe therapy dogs are a bad idea because kids might be allergic or afraid. What they fail to understand is that the dogs would be in a room and if a kid is afraid or allergic they won’t have to be around it.

    Therapy dogs can take stress off of the kids. In the text it states “And when we reduce the stress in our lives, we’re healthier.” If a kid is under stress and there is nothing a teacher can do and the school calls home and the parents say that there pet always calms the kid down so the school can’t calm the kid down because they don’t have any pets. I would like a pet at school to calm my stress at school. To back that up there is more reasons.

    Therapy pets also help children with disabilities. In the first video it said that the dog helped the autistic child how to speak. And all the other autistic kids was

  12. Yes
    I think we should have a therapy dog because a lot of students at these school have a lot of anger issues no this pet will not be able to help everyone because its people are allergic to animals that’s why we can keep him outside and all they have to do is say they are allergic to animals. Of course this does not fix all our problems but it will fix most by having them stay out there and sometimes on the weekend he can go home with some of those students who have issues. Or just let them stay a few extra minutes to play with the animal because I know when I’m mad at home and my dogs around he makes me happy.

    In the article it states that therapy animals are also used in class rooms for special people needs and it says it’s increasing in schools to help self-conscious students. Become more independent in the world. Hey provide social and emotional acceptance in their life. It does not have to be a dog it can be any friendly animal u really like.

    Using an animal as a great way to get rid of your anger is a great.

  13. Do you believe that your school should have therapy dogs I do. Here are three reasons why I think we should have therapy dogs here at Rivera middle school. First we should have therapy dogs here because a calm and friendly dog could lower blood pressure and reduces feelings of stress. Secondly we should have therapy dogs because they are used for being in classes with disabled children. Lastly therapy dogs should be here at Rivera middle school because they can help self-conscious who have issues reading in front of their teachers. And some people think otherwise. This essay will prove how therapeutic dogs or pets could be helpful to student in many ways.
    First we should have therapy dogs here because it lower and reduces feelings of stress. In the text it states, “That there is very good evidence that being with a calm and friendly dog lowers blood pressure and reduces feelings of stress”. When students go through big test and there really stressed so they have the therapy dogs to help them out. I know when I’m really stressed from work at school my bulldog at home makes me feel calm.
    Secondly therapy dogs would be useful here at Rivera middle school because they are useful to disabled children. In the text it states that “therapy dogs are used in many situations, from classrooms for learning disable to long term care facilities where people receive personal and medical assistance”. This shows that dogs could be useful in many ways. Rivera like every school has disable children.
    Lastly we should invest in having therapy dogs here at Rivera because they make people who have troubles reading in front of other people do this task that was once hard for them to do. In the text it says that trained therapy dogs are increasly being used to help self-conscious students feel co

    Did you know that a Cat, Dog, Horse, or even a Lizard Can Reduce Your Stress Level? Well, some people believe that we should not have therapy animals. I think that we should. I think that we should because many of the animals would help you reduce your stress level, it can also help with Lowering Your Blood Pressure, and it can make you happy. Some people say that there is no use in getting therapy animal.

  15. Should RMS have Therapy Animals for students?

    Should our school have therapy dogs for students?
    Well some people say you should, and some people say you shouldn’t.
    More people agree with the side of you should. One reason we should have therapy animals in our school is because most people in our schools have animals at home that calms them down so it will be a good idea for us as a school to get one. The second reason is because animal(s) calms people better than a human can, and I have evidence that can prove this later in the text. Also, most people are dog lovers and have dogs at home that are part of their family. My point is animals can be used to control student(s) emotions and anger. For an example if someone(s) gets bullied they can go to Mr. Marks where the dog or animals will be located and you sit there with the animal(s) for about 15 minutes with a snack and talk about what is going on in the class at home and for them to talk about without any anger.
    This is what proves my point- In the text it says “friendly animals lowers blood pressure and reduces feelings and emotions. Also, trained animals are increasingly being used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud. Then the text says,” with a dog by their side, the stress some students experience when they read in front of a teacher tends to just melt away. In some ways therapy animals what our school need. Also, in some other ways we don’t need them. But, in my opinion we need them because, any way our school represents an animals called a bulldog, if we get a bulldog then it will represent our school strength and what it stands for.

  16. Yes Rivera middle school should have a therapy animal
    Here’s three reasons why first, therapy animals could
    Help people under stress, second, therapy animals
    Could make people fell better f their angry. Third,
    Therapy animals could help some people do better in
    School.

    Therapy animals help people under stress. They could
    Help people under stress doing work in collage.
    Therapy animals could also get you good in school.
    Therapy animals could help lots of people under stress.

    Therapy animals could makes people fell better if their
    Angry. They could help student if their angry in school.
    They also help if your sad over something that
    Happened at home .therapy animals also help you
    And make fell better if your sick.

    Therapy animals also help students do better in school
    If they don’t fell like the work is to hard. Therapy
    Animals could help you get good grades if you work hard.

    That’s why Rivera middle school should have a therapy
    Animal. Therapy animal could help people under stress
    Also, they could help get your grades up in school,
    And they could help students if their angry in school.

  17. Do you think Rivera need a therapy dog? I think Rivera should not have a therapy dog because the dog might die and the kids might be too rough with it. And if it gets loose in the halls everyone is going to want to see it. In reality it’s a bad idea because it would need to be washed up every 2 days and is it would do its business everywhere and we would have to call the custodian to come and clean it up. So that’s why Rivera middle school should not have a therapy dog.
    But on second thought a therapy can help autistic kids happy. Also the dog can help the kids relax for the P.A.R.C.C. test at the end of the year. So it might work because the dog can help the kids stress levels go down because then kids would work better and our school work levels would go up. So I think we should have a therapy dog for the sake of our school.
    Our school would be more safe if the kids had a therapy dog to comfort and talk about their problems. It would bring the school closer together as a community. I think it would be a safe way for kids to take care of their problems. But some people are scared of dogs but once they see how friendly the dog is they wouldn’t be scared no more.
    I think it’s a great idea because then we would have less fights and less drama. Our school would be a better place and our school rates would improve. Our students would be so peaceful and kind we wouldn’t have to worry. We would be better when in the halls. It’s such a genius idea for our school to have.
    I think we should have a therapy dog now it’s your turn. So do you think Rivera middle school have a therapy dog? I want to know what u think about the situation. But for now I choose yes Rivera middle school should have a therapy dog.

  18. Do you think Rivera Middle School should have therapy animals for us students? Some people say no because they might be afraid of some animals or wants to know were the animals will stay at our school. But I say yes because I think it is a good idea. I say it’s a good idea because sometimes kids are under a lot of stress and a therapy animal could help it calm down. And a therapy dog can help kids from being shy. Also a therapy animal will do anything to help the kids. This essay will prove my opinion is right.
    Sometimes we will be under a lot of stress because it might be too much work we are getting. And the therapy animal will help us stay calm and happy. Gail Melson stated “There is very good evidence that being with a calm and friendly dog lowers blood pressure and reduces feelings of stress.” This explains that just being with a dog can make u healthier.
    Also, when you’re shy the comfort of a therapy animal helps you from staying shy. According to a video on YouTube called “Service dog helps Autistic students find their voice” says a dog named Yori helps a student to communicate. This shows that students with a little problem even need a therapy dog for comfort.
    Lastly, another interesting fact from the video “Service dog helps Autistic students find their voice” says working in this type of environment is not easy for humans or dogs, Yori has been bitten and stomped on. And people don’t want to do this type of stuff but as it shows with Yori he stills want to. Also, the video it says that when Yori was home we was sad and whimpering but when he got to school and saw the kids he was happy and jumping that means Yori does love his job even how dangerous it could be.
    These 3 reasons are why I said that we should have a therapy dog at our school because these animals care about helping people and making them feel better. Therapy animals will go through a lot just to help us improve. Also, after reading this essay what do you think we should or we should not have a therapy dog in Rivera middle school? And if you say yes than we should do something about it.

    Should Rivera Middle School Have Therapy Animals? No Rivera Middle School shouldnt have therapy animals because some kids don’t know how to take care of animals and they will hurt the animals more. In the article it says “Some have down syndrome some have had strokes or cancer or blood disorders. Some are developmentally delayed, and many are from the foster system.”
    Yes Rivera Middle School should have therapy animals because kids need love and they need someone to care for them. Study’s say that “ Therapy animals are used in all kinds of situation, from classrooms for the learning disabled to long-term care facilities where people receive personal and medical assistance around the clock”.
    To tell the truth Rivera Middle School NEEDS therapy animals even if the animals do help the kids would not help the animals at the same time. Time horse improves their ability to response to directions and to express their emotions.

  20. Should Rivera Middle School Have A Dog Therapy?

    Do you think we should have dog therapy? Well I do because, when we have test and we don’t want to do the test the dog will cheer us up so we would want to do the test. My second reason is, the dog will help us decrease the stress we build up because of school. My last reason is, because we can always use a cute furry little animal to play with and have him/her around the classroom.

    Before we take the test, we can play and have fun with the dog so we won’t spend all our time worrying about the test. When were done playing with the dog and it’s time to test we can think of what fun we had playing with the dog than the fun we won’t have thinking about the test. I know that I would be less stressed if I got to play with a dog before I started my test. My stress level will totally be decreased as soon as I touch the dog.

  21. Should Rivera Middle School have therapy animals for students?

    Calm and friendly dog can sometimes help some student with their feeling like maybe when there sad or mad or stress but no I don’t think they should have a therapy animal in Rivera school.

    Why because some students are scared of dog it says here in the text” some kids, as both Dr. Dembicki and Marszal mentioned to me, are afraid of dogs”. When some people are scared the tend to hit or throw things that can be a danger to that animal. And that animal is support to help us and us harming that nowhere near right.
    Evidence from the text show why child sometimes harm animal” statistics show that 30 percent of children who have witnessed domestic violence act out a similar type of violence against their pets.’’ according to the news on Psychology Today. Next paragraph what can’t dogs eat.
    From the website webmb.com it list 25 thing dogs can and cannot eat that maybe some of the student might not know about and might feed the the therapy animal 1 of them is Macadamia Nuts
    “As few as six raw or roasted macadamias can make them ill. Symptoms of poisoning include muscle tremors, weakness or paralysis of the hindquarters, vomiting, elevated body temperature, and rapid heart rate.” As it say in the text and at can danger the dog we don’t want some student to harm the animal
    Another one is Candy and Gum
    “Candy, gum, toothpaste, baked goods, and some diet foods are sweetened with xylitol. It can cause more insulin to circulate through your dog’s body. That can cause his blood sugar to drop and can also cause liver failure. Initial symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, and loss of coordination. Eventually, may have seizures. Liver failure can occur within just a few days.” as it say in the text some student bring candy and sweet to school and might feed it to the animal witch we don’t want .

    that why i don’t want to have a therapy animal in this school because so student are scared of animals and some want to harm it and some might feed it bad stuff so u might want to talk to your teacher about it.

  22. Do you think Rivera middle school should have therapy pets? Rivera is thinking about having therapy pets available for students. Yes Rivera should have help pets for students. The first reason one is because they change some people lives. Second reason why because they make some people comfortable doing thing’s. Third reason why because they help people with health problems. On the other hand some people think therapy pets don’t really help. This essay will show you why Rivera should have a therapy pets.
    First reason why Rivera should have help pets is because they change lives. In the text it says “a girl use to never talk or smile and one day they brought daisy Mel in everything changed. This this means daisy changed lulu life. If this was me I would love for an animal to change my life. I’m sure this made lulu was comfortable.
    The second reason why is because dogs increasingly help self-conscious read out loud in the text it states dogs are increasingly being used to help self-conscious students feel comfortable reading aloud. This means dogs make people feel comfortable. If I was not comfortable out loud I would be happy for a dog to help me. I’m glad they help with other things too.
    The last reason why Rivera should have therapy pets because they help with health issue. In the text it states the animals are horse helps kids with specials needs. They help kids with kids that have down- syndrome or had strokes or cancer or blood disorder. This means these help animals can do anything. From what I know they are trained and some are horse. On the other hand some people think they should not be in schools because they can get out of control. But there wrong they would not use them, there trained already.

  23. Do you think students should have to wear school uniforms? The people who say no are right. Here are three reasons why they are. First, students should be able to develop self-expression and their personal identity. Second, a parent might want to pick their child up and everyone is wearing the same thing, and it may be hard to find their child. Third, bullying occurs whether students wear uniforms or not. On the other hand, there are reasons why uniforms are needed. Some kids wear inappropriate clothes to school.
    Uniforms doesn’t exactly show who you are, and I can prove that. Uniforms don’t let you express yourself how you want to. You can’t even choose what you want to wear because of uniform which is a bummer.
    Uniforms can also be confusing at times. It can confuse parents some time because if a parent wants to pick their child up from school, it can be hard to know what student is their child because of uniform, and everyone has on the same clothing.
    Bullying can also occur at times to. Say if one student doesn’t wear uniform, and another student does, the student that is not wearing uniform can tease the student that is, which is a form of bullying.

    Those were the reasons why students shouldn’t wear uniform. If you forgot, don’t worry, I’ll remind you again. First is because of self-expression, second is because it might confuse a parent if they want to pick up their child from school, and third is because of bullying.
