HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (CNN/CBC NEWS) - Animals have been proven to be therapeutic and it seems they can even melt away the stress of college.
Dalhousie University in Halifax set up a "puppy room" so students could spend a few minutes with some trained therapy dogs.
The idea is to help students deal with exam time which can be "ruff."
"Just having a fluffy little companion there will be really helpful for people to de-stress," said student Jennie Evamy-Hill. "I'm really happy, I'm so excited!"
More than 300 students lined up to pet the dogs. At one point, the wait to get into the room was nearly 45 minutes.
The dogs in the room were fully grown, but the idea for the so-called "puppy room" spread quickly on Twitter, inspiring other schools to consider starting their own animal therapy project.
