Students get canine comfort to ease exam stress

Published on December 12 2012


It’s the dog days of exam time.

To help students cope with the stress of writing finals, Brock University Students’ Union and Student Health Services are providing some four-legged relief by setting up a puppy room for students to visit with St. John Ambulance therapy dogs.

The pooches will be on campus Wednesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Kenmore Centre, where there will be up to four dogs on hand to help students paws - er, pause - their studying.

Puppy rooms have proven to be a popular stress reliever at other universities that have turned to canine comfort to help students deal with the pressure of exams.
