A charity that trains assistance dogs to support adults and children has launched a new social media campaign for dog lovers. Supporters of Dogs for Good are sharing pictures of themselves enjoying time with their dogs this summer as the charity kicks off its #DogsAreGood campaign on Twitter and Facebook.
Celebrities such as Chris Packham, Sharon Osbourne, Black Sabbath's Adam Wakeman and artist Alex Clarke have already got involved, posting pictures of themselves with their dogs. Even the Telegraph's political cartoonist Bob Moran, who posted a fantastic illustration of a yellow Labrador, has got in on the fun.
Lucy Vincent, Director or Marketing says, "We’ve had a great response since we kicked off the #DogsAreGood campaign. There is no doubt that dogs play an extremely important role in our lives bringing us incredible friendship and putting a smile on our faces. We know from our work that dogs can do even more than this – indeed make life changing differences for so many people. It’s great to be able to celebrate the bond that so many of us share with our four-legged friends."
Many of the charity’s beneficiaries and volunteers have also been posting, Teresa is mum to Beth who has autism, they are partnered with autism assistance dog Quartz. Posting a picture of Beth and Quartz walking through the woods she simply said: "Making a walk through the woods possible."
To take part in the campaign which will run throughout August and September, share a photo, tag @DogsforGoodUK and use the hashtag #DogsAreGood. The charity will share the best on its own pages.
