'Puppy room' helps students de-stress during finals
UNDATED (WHDH) -- Dogs are known as man’s best friend, but this week at Dalhousie University they’ll also be known as a student’s best stress reliever.
The so-called “puppy room” was open for three days to help students deal with final exams. Each day a group of therapy canines was there to lend a paw as school pressure starts barking.
Some students said they waited for more than 40 minutes for a chance to be nuzzled, licked and loved. Students said the dogs definitely helped distract them when they needed a break.
If students couldn’t make it to the puppy room during the three time slots during the week, Dalhousie bused students to the SPCA so students could walk those shelter dogs.
