An award-winning Moray-based pet accessory company has produced a 2020 calendar to raise funds for a dementia project.
Local company Dogrobes asked customers to enter photos of their dogs in a competition to feature in the calendar, with the proceeds going to the dementia dog project.
The project aims to provide assistance dogs for families in which a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia. The project is supported by donations and is in partnership with Alzheimer Scotland and Dogs for Good.
In addition to the calendar, Dogrobes, which can be located in Fochabers, has also pledged to supply on of their innovative and practical dog drying coats to each dog that graduates their two-year specialist training and qualifies as a dementia assistance dog.
After her father, who suffered from Alzheimer’s, died, owner of Dogrobes Margaret Reynolds knew she wanted to get involved with the project. She had witnessed first-hand the incredible work the project could do for people living with the illness, as her father’s toy poodle, Missie, had been of great comfort in difficult times.
She said: “I knew Dogrobes could make a difference to the day-to-day lives of the carers and the dogs and we wanted to help.”
The A4 dementia dog calendar is made from quality paper which displays 26 photos of the winning dogs and costs £7.95.
