Bark For Life is a fundraising event honouring the life-long contributions of our canine friends. Dogs are wonderful companions and those of us who are dog owners will know the joy of walking and caring for a dog, however the personal benefits of owning a dog are numerous, including:

  • Regular dog walking improves fitness levels
  • Patting/stroking a dog helps to reduce stress, lowers your blood pressure and your chance of cardiovascular disease
  • Children with dogs tend to have better self-esteem
  • Owning a dog can help improve loneliness and also help recover from personal trauma – such as a lost loved one
  • Playing with your dog can elevate your levels of serotonin and dopamine – making you feel good and calm.
