CBU Pet Therapy

There were some special visitors at Cape Breton University.  Two dogs and a cat were on campus - to help students destress during exams.

This is a new program at CBU. Pets have been in the student union building for a few hours each day this week. And they've been a big hit with students.

The CBC's Wendy Martin spoke with students Emily MacArthur and Cassandra Coleman, as well as Katie Frasier - one of the pet owners in the Therapeutic Paws of Canada program.
