University students are really good at implementing strategies to deal with the stress of college life. However, some students at a Canadian college have launched a new family-friendly practice by establishing a puppy room for students during finals week.

Students at Dalhousie University spent time with therapy dogs brought in by Therapeutic Paws of Canada.

“It fills a need that people need right now since kids are super stressed,” stated by Michael Kean, an environmental science student who offered the concept originally.

The Puppy Room has gone viral on social media networks after the student union initially announced it on its Facebook page.

According to Don LeBlanc of Therapeutic Paws of Canada, all of the dogs attended the event came from loving homes and appreciated people’s company. A variety of breeds were there to engage with kids who sign up to visit the Puppy Room.

And the news about the Dalhousie Puppy Room has travelled so rapidly that LeBlanc says a half-dozen universities have already contacted him about hosting similar events for their students.

“If you do any research at all about the benefits of using pets, you’ll find out quite quickly that it lowers blood pressure,” LeBlanc said. “It certainly made a huge difference in my life when I got a dog.”
