THE STORY OF HOW THE CUDDLE CLUB STARTED - By Aneka, Founder of the Cuddle Club

“Suffering from poor mental and physical health made me revaluate my lifestyle choices, vocation and general outlook, my life was enhanced when I decided to get a dog, a decision that has completely transformed my life. 

"Life took me in a new direction in 2016 when, living in New York, I had to come home abruptly due to illness. This is when my life took a new direction. I had to take a year and a half off work as I was severely anaemic, suffering from anxiety, and taking eight tablets a day to just function. This was the time that Chubbs came into my life, my beloved french bulldog.

"Throughout this illness, I believe Chubbs literally saved my life and gave me the energy and motivation to get better.I threw myself into being a fully-fledged puppy mum and found a new focus to channel the little energy that I had. I attended puppy classes, even when I had no energy, and would find the strength to get out of bed to walk and play with Chubbs.

"His unconditional love and his cute little face gave me so much strength. I was a fur-mum now and I had to get better for Chubbs!

"After a long struggle, I reached the point where I was so sick of being sick and was determined to turn things around. Through this newfound love for Chubbs and seeing the amazing health benefits that Chubbs had provided me with, I was really inspired by him and decided that I wanted to turn my pain into purpose and advocate the healing effects that dogs have on humans which led me to launch The Cuddle Club."
