Hounded by exam stress? The puppy room returns

Published on March 19 2013


Four-legged stress relief is returning to Brock.

A puppy room, featuring therapy dogs from St. John Ambulance, will be set up at the Kenmore Centre on Tuesday, March 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The canine companions, touted for their calming effects, will also help students relieve stress during exams on Tuesday, April 2 and 16 at the centre from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

This is the second time Brock has hosted a puppy room to help students cope with stress as they write finals. St. John Ambulance therapy dogs helped students blow off some steam during the fall term final examination period.

The puppy room is a joint initiative of Student Health Services and the Brock University Students’ Union.
