Bringing pets into the airport to help you de-stress
LOS ANGELES - Los Angeles International Airport is going to the dogs.
This week, they launched a new program called "pets unstressing passengers," or "pup" for short, according to a CNN story.
The goal is to have the dogs ease tense travelers as they wait for their flights.
Research shows pet therapy helps relax people, decrease blood pressure and heart rate.
Officials hope these dogs help improve the atmosphere inside the airport.
