Developing a Bond
More people are sharing their lives with companion animals and will often see them as members of the family. The Human-Animal Bond is important to the health and well-being of both the animal and their guardian.
The bond is a dynamic relationship between people and animals that helps to positively influence the health and well-being of both.
Many people will experience loneliness at some point in their lives which can have a significant impact on their well-being.
Older people can experience positive mental and physical effects by bonding and connecting with companion animals.
