The Dog Days of Finals


The LSU Law Library recently partnered with the Capital Area Animal Welfare Society (CAAWS) to present the “Dog Days of Finals.”  Students who wanted to take a brief break from their studies were able to make an appointment with a “puppy therapist” for positive affirmation and unconditional love. 

Law schools across the country, including Yale, offer similar programs for their students.  Numerous studies have found that interaction with pets can reduce stress and anxiety, and lower heart rates and blood pressure.

The puppies plan to return in time for spring finals.
