Today is National Dog Day and what a perfect day for Bradley International Airport to bring back their Bradley Buddies Therapy Dog program. The program was obviously paused at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Connecticut Airport Authority is welcoming back the popular therapy dogs and their handlers to the airport.
As of today (Thursday, August 26th) the Bradley Buddies teams will be once again greeting passengers inside the airport’s terminal on a regular basis.
The Bradley Buddies Therapy Dog program was first launched at the airport in 2017 and since then has grown in popularity and in size. There are now a total of 17 teams, with all therapy dogs trained by Bright Spot Therapy Dogs, Inc. Therapy dogs are known to help provide comfort and alleviate stress, including in airport settings.
So if you’re flying anytime soon out of Hartford keep in eye out for the adorable Bradley buddies.
