Dogs and Kids at the Canadian Pet Expo

Dogs are not only a source of unconditional love, but they can help teach responsibility and empathy to children.


Did you know a family pet could add to the overall health of your family? The Human Animal Bond Research Initiative (HABRI) Foundation, recently released the results of a first-of-its-kind survey detailing the views of family physicians on the benefits of pets to human health. Throughout the study, most doctors saw their patients’ health improve as a result of pet ownership. 75% of physicians said they saw one or more of they’re patients overall health improve, and 87% said their patients’ mood or outlook improved. Furthermore 74% of doctors said they would prescribe a pet to improve overall health if the medical evidence supported it.

The Canadian Pet Expo was the perfect place for the whole family, including pets. A fun, interactive and informative day.
