Forever friends

Dogs are a great way to make new friends. People who love animals tend to bond easily and a shared interest in dogs means conversations flow better. Dogs are an ice-breaker; their friendly antics lighten the mood and provide common ground.

Dog-lover Angela Rogers (pictured above), from Chester, Cheshire, is a retired teacher, and the owner of seven-year old Golden Retriever Harvey.

The pair enjoy a full weekly schedule of activities from dog training, agility, and swimming to visits to hospices and day centres as part of Harvey’s role as a Pets As Therapy dog. In addition, Angela and Harvey go on dog activity holidays twice a year. Angela has made dozens of friends through her dog activities and she and Harvey are a popular fixture at her dog club’s social events.

She met Jenny Baxter on a Barking Mad Weekend in Shropshire and since then they have returned twice a year, with their dogs, to share the joys of agility, flyball, and country walks. Like Angela, Jenny belongs to dog training and agility groups close to her home in Coventry and takes her dogs to regular classes each week.

Although the pair rarely meet up outside of their regular holiday periods they communicate by phone, sharing news of their dogs’ latest exploits and achievements.
