Universities Introduce “Puppy Breaks” & World Becomes A Better Place

Universities Introduce “Puppy Breaks” & World Becomes A Better Place

Exams are always a stressful time. No one looks forward to exam time and the students who do, probably can’t wait to be done with it.

That being said, Simon Fraser University (SFU) and University of British Columbia (UBC) in Canada are doing something so cool, it’s hard not to want to squeal in delight.

The UBC Wellness Center has implemented a program called “Paws For Health,” that will run through exam dates. Students can sign up for the program and get 10 minutes to play and cuddle and hang out with Jasmine, the Pawfessional De-Stresser.

SFU Health and Counseling Services on the other hand, is partnering with the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) to bring puppies (being trained as service dogs) to campus.
