About us

Even through your warm smile, I could sense the weight you’re carrying – that heaviness and drain on mental health! I wanted to take the time to reach out to that person and all the other people that identify as Sarah.

Sarah, I know what it’s like to be trapped in that endless cycle of negative thoughts, worries, and overwhelming sadness. The fog of anxiety and depression can be suffocating, making every day feel like an uphill battle just to get out of bed. But I promise you, there’s a way to find glimmers of light in even your darkest moments – and it might just come in the form of an angel without wings (I call them My Little Angels for a reason).

How Can They Help?

Picture this coming home after another emotionally draining day, trapped in your own mind. But instead of being met with silence and emptiness, you’re greeted by a wiggling ball of pure, unbridled joy. That’s the magic of having a dog. No matter how low you might feel, their tail-wagging enthusiasm at your mere presence is enough to crack a smile and momentarily forget your troubles.

These fluffy therapists have a seemingly supernatural ability to sense our emotions, and their unconditional love and loyalty provide a level of comfort and security that no pill or self-help book can replicate. When the world feels like it’s crashing down around you, they’re a calming constant, reminding you that you’re never truly alone.

But the mental health benefits of dog ownership go far beyond emotional support. Studies show that simply petting a dog can lower your body’s levels of cortisol, that pesky stress hormone that has you constantly feeling on edge (1). Everything about them acts as a natural antidepressant, lifting your mood and calming your mind in ways modern medicine still can’t fully explain.

Sarah I’m not just saying this to be nice or any other ulterior motive (I know I’m a breeder, but please ignore this for a moment), I want to share with you the TRUTH! Here is a study that supports everything I’m saying; This qualitative study (I can’t give up when I have them to care for) explores how pets impact mental health and well-being. Its long so let me give you the main points, increased motivation, reduced anxiety, and prevention of self-harm. The study shows that pets cannot replace professional mental health treatment but play a valuable role.

Still Not Convinced?

Let’s not forget the physical perks of having a canine companion, which can indirectly boost your mental well-being. Daily walks, playtime, and the simple act of caring for another living creature can help you stay active, present, and focused on something other than your own worries and fears. It’s a welcome reprieve from the relentless chatter in your mind.

Sarah, I know how isolating and hopeless depression and anxiety can feel. But I also know the profound impact a furry friend can have on your mental health journey. So if you’re struggling, consider opening your heart and home to a dog. They might just be the key to finding your way out of the fog and back into the light.
