Dogs help travelers – level 2

15-03-2024 15:00

Istanbul Airport now has therapy dogs to help travelers relax before flights. Some people are anxious before flying and therapy dogs are a great help.

Passengers like Anastasia Podmazova welcome the service, and they find comfort in petting dogs like Kuki. Because of positive feedback, the airport is thinking of having five more dogs. That would make ten dogs altogether.

Dog expert Murat Cengiz Koca said that the trained dogs stayed calm and didn’t react to sounds or people.

Difficult words: anxious (worried and nervous), comfort (to improve the mood), pet (to touch an animal because you like it).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
