The unconditional love of a dog is something that many of us have had most of our lives.  Yet society may pressure us as we age that we 'can't' do this anymore because we're 'too old'.  This isn't necessarily true for everyone.  What is true is that as we age our obligations and available time changes.  Seniors typically have the time available to nurture and develop a strong emotional bond.  Owning a dog has changed so much in the last 20 years.  With dogs now very common in a healthcare setting.

Dogs can make ideal companions for Seniors. Canine companions offer loyalty, provide joy, and give unconditional love. Dogs are totally accepting of their elderly owners. They don't see any wrinkles or physical limitations. Instead, they only see someone they love who loves them back.  

In this free lecture, join Kim Mayhew of Hidden Potential Farm as she discusses the joys and concerns in dog ownership for Seniors.
