Finn will mainly be in his handler’s individual office, but might be seen in the Snell hallways or group rooms. Sometimes Finn goes to OSU events, and you might see him at the CAPS table! Finn will also be going outside to stretch his legs sometimes, so you might see him around campus.

Unfortunately, Finn will only be attending specific events that CAPS facilitates and will not be available to be scheduled. Finn is also not taking appointments at this time, but if you see him in his office with the door open, or out on campus, please feel free to say “hi!”

Finn will be at OSU most workdays during the week (Monday – Friday).

Finn has his Canine Good Citizen certification through the American Kennel Club, which tests his personality, obedience, and ability to remain calm. He also has a therapy dog certification through the Alliance of Therapy Dogs. He went through testing, multiple visits with a tester/observer watching him, and lots of practice prior to certification. He also has prior work experience supporting clients in a therapeutic setting.

It is not uncommon to have allergies, fears, or phobias related to dogs. If you experience any of these (or have other concerns), please contact CAPS at 541-737-2131. If you let us know in advance, we can make sure that you do not come into contact with Finn!

At this point, Finn is not seeing clients other than the ones scheduled with his handler, that he sees at events, or around campus. If you have any questions, please call CAPS at 541-737-2131. If you see Finn on campus or at an event, please come say “Hi” because he would love to meet you!

Yes! Finn will attend some of the key events that CAPS facilitates. He will not be at all events, however, so if you want to know if he will be at a specific event, please call CAPS at 541-737-2131.

Of course! Finn loves meeting new friends. Please check with his handler prior to touching him, though, so that Finn knows that you are coming. He will be wearing an orange or red harness vest on campus and will be with his handler.

Finn is very sweet and incredibly goofy. He loves to have his belly scratched and loves people. If you have a tennis ball with you, he will probably want to play a game and get it all slobbery.

Unfortunately, Finn cannot be fed by anyone other than his handler. He has special dietary needs and can get sick quickly if he eats food that is not approved by his veterinarian. You are more than welcome to pet him, though!
