Airport to provide therapy dogs for stressed travellers

November 30, 2017 - 11:13 PM

WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. - A Connecticut airport is giving stressed travellers the chance to hug a therapy dog during the holiday season.

Officials at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks say their six-month pilot program with the dogs was popular among passengers. Now, people can cuddle with the dogs in the airport concourse two days a week.

The dogs and their handlers are provided at no cost by Massachusetts-based Bright Spot Therapy Dogs. Founder Cynthia Hinckley says the dogs help lower people's blood pressure.

WVIT-TV reports the dogs could be at the airport every day pending the program's success.
