Looking for an escape weekend love to cuddle puppies, then make your reservation now for the Sunrise Springs Spa in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The all-inclusive spa offers a session of puppy cuddling, which science says can be beneficial to your health, such as lowering blood pressure, heart rate and cortisol levels.  But all this puppy cuddling isn't just for humans to feel good. Sunrise Springs partnered with Assistance Dogs of the West (ADW) — a non-profit organization dedicated to training service dogs for those in need — to create the on-site Puppy Enrichment Center, currently home to eight puppies training to be service dogs. Puppies training to be service dogs require lots of socialization, so they are prepared to calmly handle any situation when they are older. This is where Sunrise Springs steps in. The spa resort uses its puppy play and cuddling packages as a way to help humans and dogs as the future service dog learn basic commands from a variety of friendly faces. When the canines aren’t learning from guests, the puppies can often be found eating, playing on the resort’s property or resting in their luxurious accommodations.
