Lehigh Carbon Community College held a canine break for its students looking to de-stress from exam week by providing access to therapy dogs from Therapy Dogs International.
Dubbed "Pause for Therapy Dogs," the two-day event gave students the opportunity to relax and unwind for a few minutes during exam week, something that was welcome by many.
"It's pretty relaxing. It's been a good way to take a break and it's been a stressful week," said student Olivia Braadt.
Maureen Malkner concurred. "I've been dealing with a lot of stress it helps out. I need a dog," she said.
The specially-trained therapy dogs have been proven to help relax a person's stress level.
