Quinnipiac University students that are stressed over the thought of upcoming finals now have the opportunity to relax with the help of a therapy dog.
Donna Latella, a QU occupational therapy professor, is bringing 3-year-old Aubry to the North Haven campus Tuesday to help students prepare for final exams.
The golden retriever will be on the third floor of the Center for Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences building on Bassett Road from noon to 3 p.m.
Both Latella and Aubry are certified through Pet Partners, a national recognized organization that is dedicated to animal-assisted activities and therapy.
As part of their capstone project, four of Latella's occupational therapy students will check the blood pressures, heart rates, respiratory rates and stress levels of those students who visit Aubry.
