(Bozeman Daily Chronicle) There’s just something about dogs that makes you feel good.

This week and next week, calming canines are helping relax Montana State University students who are preparing for final exams.

“Paws to de-Stress” brings dogs from Intermountain Therapy Animals to Renne Library on campus.

“Stress levels rise around finals time on college campuses every year, and there’s research that shows that using animals in a therapy setting has multiple benefits, including reduced stress and reduced blood pressure,” said Jacqueline Frank, library commons assistant at MSU who started Paws to de-Stress this semester.
