A group of Norfolk dog lovers is inviting people to get together over shared love of their four-legged friends as part of celebrations of International Friendship Day on July 30.
Barking Mad South Norwich organises dog holidays as an alternative to kennels and have created a local community of dog lovers, by offering the opportunity to ‘host’ somebody else’s dog whilst they are away. Hosts provide a loving home environment for doggy guests, which can be a real antidote to loneliness.
Helen Tyler, of the group, said: “It is such a wonderful feeling to see groups of like-minded people brought together, where the common thread is the love of dogs. Conversations and friendships are struck up easily over a shared interest and people love the sense of community.”
