How Rescue Dogs Help Vet Tech Students Pass Tests

Students in the veterinary technology program at Globe University-Green Bay recently had some cute visitors who helped them prepare for their course tests, or otherwise known as “competencies.” These tests help ensure that the vet tech students can demonstrate specific job skills that are needed within the certified veterinary technician role.

Mit Liebe German Shephard Dog Rescue

The Mit Liebe German Shepard Dog Rescue visited the students. Mit Liebe means “with love.” The rescue brought three dogs in to allow the veterinary tech students to draw blood and run blood work as a part of their competencies.  Anita Delzer is the rescue’s director and has a huge heart for German shepard dogs. They look  up to her like crazy, and when she walked out of the room they could not wait for her to come back! Students worked with Walker, Wrecks, and Karma, which are all “permanent residents” at the rescue.

The puppy in the picture has special needs and is currently not adoptable, but they do have several that are looking for a forever home. You can check under their website on the available dogs page to see current adoptable dogs.

Real World Application

Students value the ability to meet, network and practice the skills they will need in the workplace during their course of study. The vet tech program at Globe University-Green Bay emphasizes on hands-on learning along with career applications so that securing a job after completing an externship is a smooth transition.
