It is National Mental Health Awareness Week in the UK right now, so this week we thought we’d take a moment to look at all the ways in which our pets can help us to stay happy and healthy during these challenging times. Many of us have been spending more time with our pets than ever before and forming close bonds.

At the moment many of us are only allowed outside for essential activities or exercise once a day and some dogs that are used to having several walks are only getting one. We’ve all been discovering new ways to fill our time and some of us have finally been getting round to things that we have wanted to do for ages. This week we really enjoyed reading about a lady called Joe who set up an obstacle course for her dogs and her chickens in Clacton-on-Sea. Joe is a professional dog trainer and she has wanted to set up a course...
