Therapy dog helps relieve finals stress for college students


Students at Hudson Valley Community College are taking a day to de-stress, just in time for final exams.

All thanks to a special visitor: Stella the therapy dog.

“When they pet them they lower their pressure and they make them feel good and it’s a double win-win for the dog because the dog loves to be petted and handled,” said Therapy Dog International’s Cydnay Cross.

Students got to enjoy an hour with Stella to pet and play with her before she had to leave.
