Puppy Room: University Brings In Stress Relief For Students


That’s right. Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, has decided that, y’know, finals are really stressful, so why not build a puppy room for the students to hang out in? A puppy room. Needless to say, the students are super supportive of this. Puppy room.

On December 4th, 5th and 6th, Dalhousie will be opening the Puppy Room so that students can cope with exams and end-of-year assignments. The puppies will be coming with Therapeutic Paws of Canada volunteers, who specialize in bringing dogs and cats to schools and senior homes for stress relief.

They’ve been going around to other places in Canada bringing a pup around. It’s been well-documented that petting a dog reduces stress and blood pressure.

Many students have noted that they miss their dogs from back home and can’t wait to hang out with some pups.

I want a puppy room.

Yeah. After a long day of studying and exams, I want to hang out with these boys.

And yeah, Corgi with a bow tie.

That’s a dapper puppy. It’s a fact — all Corgis should be wearing bow ties. Anything less is unacceptable.

And we would be remiss in this puppy photo jamboree if we didn’t bring in Meg’s Penny.

At least she isn’t cold? She doesn’t seem all that amused.

And then my favorite breed. Let’s get some Labradors in there:

So, yeah, enjoy the puppies, you lucky bastards. At least at Fresno State we had an English Bulldog hanging around.

I actually enjoy English Bulldogs. They’re pretty awesome.

They haven’t mentioned what breed of puppies would be at Dalhousie, but I would imagine they’re rescue pups. It’s a great way to help students get through finals without having a heart attack.
