Our dogs can give us purpose, they provide us with opportunities to be present, and so much more. While in this episode we're talking about how training our dogs, enjoying our dogs and spending time with our dogs can improve our mental health, we also touch on how our dogs can do quite the opposite.
Going out for a walk with our dogs, going out on the beach, on an off-lead (or on-lead) walk and being in the moment can provide us with such an amazing outlet that will give us an optimism boost, and a mental health boost. Playing games, focusing on the fun and laughter, can bring us out of darker moments where we're struggling.

We have a few tips for you to get a dog-inspired mental health boost.Support the show
