Pet dating service
“We met one morning at ten, and by seven that evening we had come up with the whole concept of Leashes and Lovers,” recalls Sheryl.
When asked to explain what Leashes and Lovers does, Michelle says, “Leashes and Lovers is where dog lovers meet.
Not if you enlist the help of that four-legged canine cupid bouncing around your feet.
That’s right: your dog, in addition to being your very best friend, may also be your best asset on the “ruff” and rocky road to romance.
The last person you were with couldn’t deal with dog hair on the furniture or your pup’s cold nose thrust under the covers to remind everyone that it was time for his A. Never fear: creative singles services and modern technology are making it possible for you to meet other dog lovers outside the scope of your daily neighbourhood jaunts.
One such store is Fetch in Vancouver, which holds its popular “Yappy Hour” events every few months.
Though not specifically singles events, owner Kelly Josling says that most of the Yappy Hour attendees are younger people—and flirting definitely does occur. “We have wine for the people and appetizers for the dogs, and it gives people a place they can go besides the dog park to meet other dog lovers and talk about their dogs.
Wood explains that if you’re not a true dog lover, having a dog likely won’t do much for your dating life anyway.
“What really attracts people is the love,” she believes.
