Zeek, the Conservatory Dog, has been reporting to work since 2008. He is the Conservatory's official mascot, greeter, stress-reducer, and comedian. His favorite activity is meeting prospective students and parents on audition days.
His Australian Cattle Dog heritage makes him particularly adept at herding late students to class. When not providing pet therapy, or training faculty, staff, and students how to most efficiently dispense doggie treats, he co-teaches Dean Pertl's didjeridu classes.
