Turning to dogs for love and friendship during lockdown


As case numbers grew and more people were stuck at home, early fears about pets being potential carriers turned into a search for love and friendship from the four-legged creatures. “When the lockdown was opened partially, people were rushing and coming to take puppies, ” said Dawn William of the Blue Cross of India animal-welfare group in Chennai. The 27-year-old helps people find puppies to adopt, offers training for new owners and prepares pedigree and street pooches for animal-assisted therapy. One of Katiyar’s regular customers is Avani Naresh, 29,an IT business owner who had a lifelong fear of dogs. “If I had a dog during the lockdown, I think my anxiety levels, my stress levels would have been to the minimum.” – AFP Relaxnews
