Matchmaking for Pet Lovers

We all know how easy it is to strike up a conversation with
others when we are out with our pets.
Even when our pets aren’t with us at a dinner party or lunch meeting,
one of the first things we all do is whip out our cell phones to show off our
adorable Spikes and Bellas.

Meet a stranger and need a quick ice breaker to begin small
talk? Ask about their pets. It opens doors to even the toughest most
standoff-ish people.

Now imagine being single and trying to meet that perfect
someone. What a nerve-racking experience
for all of us. What if you have the
perfect, fluffy wingman on a leash?

With more and more people meeting their significant others
online, it makes sense that dating/match making services for pet lovers has
become a big business.

Sheryl Matthys of the online social community, Leashes and Lovers, says people often
trust their dog’s instincts more than their own when meeting new people.

Members of the fee-based service
add photos and videos of themselves and the pooches to their profiles. They also have access to monthly teleseminars
by experts on health, relationships, dog health and training—combining looking
for love and raising a happy, social dog into one location.

What a great way to connect with other singles who have a
love for their dog as strong as you do?
Might we suggest the local dog park as a first date choice?
