In the past year, there were dogs at school and they were there to help people when they needed it and if they just needed comfort. They should have the dogs back in school every other day because they have many benefits. According to an article called Benefits of Classroom Animals, they claim that animals can help with responsibility.

While dogs can help with the responsibility they can also be distracting so I think that they should give the kids the opportunity to go spend time with the dogs if they have their academics where they need to be

Also according to the article petsintheclassroom, it states that a pet brings increased sensitivity and awareness of the feelings and needs of others—both animals and humans. In my experience having dogs can help with feelings because they can be there just to comfort you in times that you need and they are also really helpful when you just need a break they can distract you from what is bothering you

“In the United States, as many as three in 10 people with allergies have allergic reactions to cats and dogs,” according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. So in my opinion they should have them in an area that kids with allergies won’t be in or they can just have hypoallergenic dogs for the students with allergies

In my experience days can help with stress and that will be helpful in school because academics and pressure in school have been proven by 68% of students to be the most stressful thing about school so I think that dogs should be allowed in school because they bring a lot of benefits to the students and teachers
