Here's the honest truth about dogs: They're great. Like really great. Possibly the greatest things in the world. They chase sticks and jump in ponds and make you happy when you're sad. One thing's for sure, dogs are far more entertaining than a tablet or smartphone. That may be hard to hear but it's true.
With this in mind, we teamed up with the good people at Dogs Trust to urge folks to ditch the Xbox, toss the tablet, and switch off the iPhone in favour of a four-legged BFF for life. It's the summer so it's time to get outside, and a dog is the best form of encouragement.
42% of dog owners say they take more exercise as a family thanks to their pet. Dogs Trust new campaign, #GetADog, is encouraging families to adopt a dog at a time when the kids can really throw themselves into looking after it - meaning more time spent in the real world, not the virtual one.
