University Opens Puppy Room to Students, for Stress Relief

The dog room will be available during final exams

An alternative relaxation method is grabbing headlines this week, as students at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia will have the option to relax during finals by playing with puppies.

"Stressed from exams? Come take a break from studying and play with a dog!," the poster for the upcoming stress relief salon reads.

In case you're wondering, this is not a joke. Organizers said it themselves, "Yup, it’s a room full of puppies."

The puppy anti-stress room sounds like a very good idea, which should definitely be implemented in more colleges. Unfortunately, for that you would need space, attendants and a lot of puppies.

The response from students makes it all worth it, though.

"Thank You Universe... Everything is going to officially be okay," George Woodhouse wrote as a reply to the University's post, according to a report by NY Daily News.
