Traveling for the Holidays? Many Airports Allow Puppy Snuggles Pre-Flight

December 22, 2015

This post is brought to you by United Airlines and was originally published on BarkPost. Take a paws to de-stress during the busy holiday travel season with therapy dogs at several United terminals around the U.S. from December 21 – 23! Share a picture of your dog in a travel setting or with a United Airlines logo or gear to be entered to win two roundtrip tickets when you use the hashtags #UnitedPaws and #UnitedContest. Not traveling for the holidays? You can still take part in the fun by submitting a photo of your pup with the tags above! For every photo shared, United will donate $1 to support therapy dog organizations. For United Paws Contest Official Rules visit here.

I’m sure this rings true for many of you, especially during the holidays. But aside from their irresistible fluffiness, there’s a scientific explanation as to why dogs make us feel the way that they do.
