Man's Best Friend / Tools for elderly and dog

Man's Best Friend
Man's Best Friend

To help solve problems faced by an ageing population as funding for healthcare dwindles, man's best friend investigates ways to let dogs help people. Our oldest companions, dogs have shown their ability to complement our weaknesses and can do more than sit with you or join you for a walk.
A guard dog can protect its owner from muggers by carrying her valuables. With a pill box around its collar, a retriever may be the nicest of reminders. When carrying groceries becomes a burden, a set of saddlebags across a shepherd's back offers a solution. And for those whose legs have worn out, there’s the dog cart for greater mobility.
