Loneliness is something that we all experience from time to time, so Loneliness Awareness
One of the most incredible things we gain from being in the company of a dog is that we’re able to be unapologetically ourselves. They accept us for who we are and that’s an important factor in combating feelings of loneliness.
Our workshops always involve a canine co-tutor, a rescue dog and it’s the dog that’s able to bring out the best in the group. They’re pure magic. We also get invited to speak at events and more often than not we’re told, ‘don’t bother coming if you haven’t got a dog with you!’
We totally understand!
We know that dogs are a not-so-secret ingredient to combat loneliness so let’s make a concerted effort to hang out with our canine friends, appreciate them and be unapologetically ourselves when we’re with them. That is a great rehearsal for being able to be who we are when we’re around human folk, which in turn will encourage them to feel safe to be who they are. Once again, dogs can be the catalyst for change that we all need.
