You've heard of checking out books from the local library, but what about checking out dogs?

The University of San Francisco School of Law will be offering students the chance to check out a furry friend during upcoming final exams. School officials say this is a "fun, unique and proven way to relieve law student stress."

Five dogs and their trainer will be available. Students can sign up for ten-minute sessions to play, study with, or just chill with the canine companion.
