19 / Slipping Into Negativity
Loona / Jianbo / Kickstarter 

In a world where there is economic turmoil, skyrocketing inflation, currency fluctuations, and war – it can be really difficult to find the positives.

But as a dog dad, you have a secret weapon. This past month has been tough, but often the breakaway you need is staring right back at you - your dog.

If you ever feel yourself slipping into negativity, dedicate more time with your dog. Go for longer walks, spend longer playing, cuddle more on the sofa, try training new tricks. These small and seemingly insignificant changes make a massive difference.

Thats all for this month folks.

Dogs Can Sniff Out Stress on Owner's Breath
