University funds dog walking for students to stop them becoming stressed ahead of exams

A university has funded dog walking for students in order to prevent stress during the exam season.

The University of East Anglia, in Norwich, received around £12,000 of funding to help improve student well-being through physical activity. Part of this money is going towards pet therapy.

Students will be able to go on walks with dogs to Cromer beach and Thetford Forest. The dogs will be lent to the university by academics and members of the public. The university is also in contact with a local dog day care to see if they can lend their animals to the cause.
