As I'm sure many of you are aware October is ADHD awareness month and today is World Mental health day. We really had to highlight the positive impact our dogs have on our overall wellbeing, but very importantly our mental health. I am sure like many other dog, or indeed animal lovers it seems obvious how much joy they bring to our lives but I was sent a fascinating and comprehensive article on the subject recently. I can't take any credit because all of the work was done by Jack Bird who has pulled together a lot of the published research on the subject. He asked if I'd like to incorporate it into any future articles and I'm very happy to. Well today seems very fitting to share this excellent piece with you and the link is below. Thank you Jack I'm sure our readers will find it very interesting.
