2018 is Year of the Dog

At Caregiving Club, we are avid pet lovers and believe in the power of pet therapy. Most of us here are dog owners which is why we are thrilled that 2018 is the “Year of the Dog” in the Chinese calendar.

All year long we’ll offer various stories, interviews and articles on how dogs improve our health as caregivers (lower blood pressure and get us moving) as well as calm and comfort those with Alzheimer’s, autism, Parkinson’s disease and other chronic illnesses. We also offer insights into the world of both real pets and their robotic counterparts.
