PAWS your stress

PAWS+your+stress

GW hosted “PAWS Your Stress” in University Yard on Saturday where 11 cuddly puppies from “Canine Companions for Independence” offered students some stress relief as they enter the final examination period.

“Canine Companions for Independence” is a non-profit that raises and trains assistance dogs to work with children and adults that suffer from disabilities.

“It’s great for their socialization and it’s great for the students to relieve a little bit of stress as they’re going in to the busy exam season,” said John Rogers, President of the Capital Chapter of “Canine Companions for Independence.”

The puppies certainly offered an escape from studying with their furry faces and wagging tails.
