The benefits of owning a furry friend goes beyond love and companionship. Dog owners have lower blood pressure, lower cholesterol levels, fewer hearts attacks, and, in general, fewer medical problems. This could be, in part, because dog owners typically walk their dog, which is part of a healthy lifestyle.
Dogs also encourage humans to be more social. Studies indicate that 40% of people reported making friends much easier as the result of owning a dog. That incomparable happy and warm feeling we get when our furry friend greets us at the door each day, makes it easy to see why dog owners have the lowest response to stress and greater contentment in life. Dogs truly make us better people! The bond between dogs and humans is a remarkable and beautiful thing.
