The Chicago Dog Coach, Ami Moore, CMT, CMVT, a leading expert in dog psychology, is famous for revealing the truth about the relationships between dogs and their owners. It may be time for Cesar Milan to move over, as the Chicago Dog Coach recently that hugging a dog can actually help heal your heart.

"The healing effects of dog ownership," stated Ms. Moore, "on both the individual and society are well documented. I would ask anyone who questions this to consider the following:"

• Petting a dog can reduce one's blood pressure.

• Walking a dog can help reduce obesity.

• Creating dog parks which are open 24 hours decreases crime in local neighborhoods

Ami Moore has created two signature drinks in honor of this holiday and the release of her book and DVD: the “Alphatini” and the “Alpharita”. More information on the Hug Your Hound Day event is available by calling 847-284-7760.
