On Modern Mindset this week, Adam Cox is once again diving into the world of our mental health and well being - but with a twist! How do dogs, man's longest and most loyal companion, improve our lives? He talks to Kellie Ceccarelli a veterinary nurse and Roxy Carr a 17 year old dog owner and author about the psychological and mental health benefits of owning a pet dog. Many people will wait till they own their own house or have a family before getting a dog but Roxy persuaded her parents to allow her to own a dog at the age of 11. She took all the responsibility of walks, training and care and found many health and wellbeing advantages. She features her story with Poppy, a cockapoo in a new book called ‘A Pawfect Pair’.with Kelly and Roxy to find out what a difference dogs can really make to our lives.
