Guest Post: Why Dogs Help With Depression and Anxiety


By Andy McNaby, Pet Gear Lab

The World Health Organisation declared April 7th, 2017 as World Health Day focussing on mental health. This year-long campaign aims to educate, raise awareness and help people suffering from mental illness.

Depression, Anxiety, and other mental health issues now affect over 300 million people worldwide according to the WHO and we think that more needs to be done to educate and inform just how tough this illness can be. It's usually also the underlying cause of many other social issues.
