In Business News: Airport Therapy Dogs Do Their Duty

They take their responsibility seriously. They are ready for all the pats and hugs.

Flights are annoying. Flights from Toronto to anywhere international can be cumbersome, long, and sometimes not even worth the thought in my opinion. A direct flight to Hong Kong is 16 hours. 16! That’s basically two workdays. It hurts being in North America and being so far away from the rest of the world. The other thing that sucks about travelling, in my opinion, is the airport. I get stressed even just thinking about GOING to the airport.

There’s traffic, parking, checking in, security, customs, waiting for the flight, and even getting on the flight. All that takes hours of preparation. You need to triple check that you have all the right paperwork, make sure your carry on has nothing that would be deemed a risk (because tweezers could be used for something devious), and most important: know where your passport is at all times.

There are so many other variables to worry about when you’re not travelling alone. If you’re responsible for somebody else or especially a lot of somebody elses, it gets even more hectic!

You can’t lose anyone. You have to make sure everyone has their paperwork, is fed, and accounted for. The airport is where stress goes to foster.
