Create a Happier, Healthier Life for You and Your Dog
Dogs Can Heal Us. We Can Heal Our Dogs.
If you’ve journeyed through life, love and loss with a dog by your side, you know that the unconditional love of a dog is powerful medicine. Science is even uncovering what our hearts already know: dogs are good for us. They have the power to heal. They make us happier, they keep us healthier, they help us live longer.
Let’s return the favor.
My Three Dogs Saw Me Through the Darkest Days of My Life.
As much as I wanted to pull the covers over my head, their small army of furry faces coaxed me back out into the world.
They were happy to see me. They made me laugh. They made me feel safe through those first lonely nights.
They reminded me that I am loved.
They reminded me that I am lovable.
As I struggled to pull my life back together, I became obsessed with two questions:
How can I feel happier and healthier?
And how can I do the same for my dogs?
Happy Dog Mom is the result.
