If you’re an animal lover, you know that your pet can change your mood on a bad day. It seems like a lot of times when I’m feeling a little down, my dog Molly stays a little bit closer to me. I’ll find myself petting her and calming down without even realizing I’ve been doing it. She seems to somehow instinctively know when I need a little TLC from her and is always there for me.
I saw a tv show a few months ago about how being around animals can have a really calming and sometime healing effect on people. The show told lots of great stories about how caring for animals encouraged people who’d had difficult childhoods learn empathy and responsibility. It also talked about studies that showed how people with illnesses and people in therapy would see improvement when they used therapy dogs. Being able to love and feel the unconditional love back from the therapy dogs made a world of difference to those patients.
With that in mind, Cesar has created an initiative called “Share a Story and Share the Love”. It’s a wonderful campaign to help support and applaud therapy dog associations. Dog and animal lovers are encouraged to share the wonderful stories of therapy dogs through social media to help others understand the amazing benefits of dog therapy, including lowered anxiety, stress and even blood pressure.
If you’re a pet lover, be sure to head over and check out the “Share a Story and Share the Love” campaign online and on Facebook and Twitter. Cesar will be doing its part to share the love by donating funds that will help continue services in three therapy dog organizations. Let’s all do our part to help this wonderful initiative be a huge success!
I wrote this review while participating in an ambassador program by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Cesar and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.
