Therapy Dogs Help Students De-Stress During Finals

BOZEMAN -

Thousands of Montana State University students are stressing about finals this week. That's why this week, the library is not only a place to study, but a place to relax.

Intermountain Therapy Animals is bringing in dogs for students to pet. The "Paws to de-Stress" program helps college students relax as they prepare to take their final exams.

Junior Haley Conners said petting a dog makes her feel so much better, before taking a test.

"They always want to please you and you can't be angry at something that is always trying to please you," said Conners. "The dogs help me relax and just make me feel happy."

This is the second time the dogs have been brought to MSU. In the spring, organizers say over 260 students stopped by the library to pet the dogs.
