An airport in Pennsylvania is helping travelers forget the stress of travel this Thanksgiving. 

More than a dozen puppies were at Harrisburg International Airport this morning for flyers to relax before walking down the jet bridge to their awaiting planes.

The 17 puppies are actually service dog puppies that help relieve stress, and melt a few hearts heading into the holiday weekend, WGAL reported.

The dogs are young, only 8 weeks old and will start training to become a service dog next week through Susquehanna Service Dogs. If they pass their temperament test, they’ll then be matched to people to raise them to become full-fledged service animals for people with mobility issues, WGAL reported

They’ll live with the families who are raising them for about a year and a half before being evaluated and matched with a person in need of a service dog.
