Harry regularly helps those in need by visiting hospitals, care homes, schools, the Police and offices in the community. He has also raised over £1,800 for charity Therapy Dogs Nationwide by climbing Mount Snowdon. Jane recalls “we spent about 15 minutes with Boris in his office and he was very impressed with the work we do”.

This wasn’t the first time a dog had captured Boris’s heart. His own dog, Dilyn, now residing at 10 Downing Street, is a rescue from animal charity Friends of Animals Wales. Boris was introduced to the charity by campaigner Marc Abraham who worked tirelessly to pass Lucy’s Law. It prohibits the sale of puppies from pet shops and requires puppies by law to be seen with their mother which prevents the despicable puppy farming industry from profiteering. 

The Naturo SuperDog Awards has already received thousands of nominations, many in recognition for the crucial support that dogs have provided through lockdown. According to NHS England and NHS Improvement, mental health problems represent the biggest single cause of disability in the UK, with one in four adults experiencing at least one diagnosable mental health condition in any given year.  “

 

“The simple act of interacting with a dog has been found to dramatically improve mood and general well being. Beautiful examples of this can be seen time and time again within the nominations and we love that our awards are shining a light on each and every one of them.” Nicole Cooper, Managing Director of events company Touchpoint Live Media comments.

 

As a nation of dog lovers, we realise all dogs are Superdogs, but charities including Therapy Dogs Nationwide and Pets As Therapy are showing us that dogs may be much more than cuddly companions tracking mud through the living room. They could actually be the key to unlocking this country’s growing mental health pandemic which currently shows no sign of going away.
