Pet Support Group, for owners with challenging pets: Nurturing and caring for a pet with problems


Do you find, you are living your life around your pet? Often, owning, loving and caring for a pet with problems can be challenging. Sometimes you may feel frustrated, isolated and you may begin to doubt, your own pet ownership abilities and instincts and often ask yourself, “am I doing the right thing”?

The Pet Support group welcomes all people who struggle with the challenge of living with and caring for their difficult pet. This group is dedicated to supporting you in managing and honoring your bond, no matter how delicate or difficult. We aim to achieve this by providing a supportive social network to help reduce isolation and stress and by encouraging you to mind fully notice and cherish the positive aspects in your relationship with your pet.

While I strongly believe that training is a great way to further explore your relationship with your dog, our group focuses on the emotions involved with your relationship and does not include training advice.

I will facilitate monthly meetings that will incorporate member-to-member communication and support in a safe and open environment. Group attendees are invited to relate their own challenging, personal struggles while vowing to offer a non judgmental, empathetic ear and coping strategies when requested by peers.

What better group of people to connect with than those who walk in the same shoes?

The advantages of attending this support group are limitless. Some of the best reasons to join include:

  • Sharing common experiences and exploring problems
  • Learning new coping strategies and healthy emotional outlets for frustrations
  • Forming new friendships and discovering a sense of community
  • Learning to thrive in spite of your pet’s issues
  • Being surrounded by a love based approach to repair and nurture your bond 


Meetings, First Sunday of every month

Where: Wetlands Café, Ashhurst Domain, Ashhurst

Next Meeting:

Sunday 3rd May from 3. 30 – 4.30

I would like to thank Rachel Bow, Ruff Mutts Portland, Oregon, USA, for her assistance and advice on setting up this Support Group.

Do you have a First Aid Kit for your dog?

We all have first aid kits for ourselves but how many of us have first aid kits for our pets.

When you think about it, we should all have one for our pets they need one as much as we do.

A first aid kit could help save your pets life whether, you are at home or away. May buy you some time to until you can reach an emergency vet.

Also they are good to have in case of a natural disaster because anything can happen.

Below is a link to a list of things you can put in your pets first aid kit.
