Gordon Trevett, from the University’s Centre for Sport, Exercise and Health, and also a Warden at the Hiatt Baker Hall of residence, read about a similar event last year and wanted to bring the puppy love to Bristol with the help of the charity Guide Dogs.

He said: “Every year I see students fretting about their exams and I thought this would be a great way to ease the stress and take their minds off it.”
