At 18 months, Harley the golden retriever is already a pro therapy dog. He delighted the students of Mount Saint Mary College on Monday, October 17.
Halloween’s on the horizon, but the spookiest thing for college students this month is midterms.
Thankfully, it was all treats and no tricks for Mount Saint Mary College students when a group of therapy dogs provided a stress-busting break on Monday, October 17.
These precious pups were sweeter than candy for the Mount community. Research has indicated that watching, petting, or talking to an animal can lower blood pressure and heart rate.
The animals came to the Mount via Hudson Valley Paws for a Cause. The popular event has become a tradition at Mount Saint Mary College.
“Wagging Tails Stress Relief” was co-sponsored by the Mount Saint Mary College Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center, the Counseling Center, and the Student Government Association. The event took place at the Kaplan Family Library and Learning Center.
