Dogs offers a lot more than just companionship. If you’ve got a furry friend already, you likely have a bunch of reasons to thank your dog. Or if you’re considering getting a pet dog then it can be considered as a great therapy.
You’ll exercise more often
Owning a dog will motivate you to exercise frequently. On those days, it will be easier for you to skip the gym. Looking at your pooch standing by the door waiting for you to take him for a walk can give you the push you need to get out there. Taking your dog for a 30 minutes walk daily can greatly improve your health.
You’ll feel less stressed
There are many studies proving that having a dog can decrease stress levels. Petting a dog, playing with a dog, and simply watching your pet dog can reduce your stress gradually with each passing day. Studies also show that dog ownership reduces stress hormones.
Your social life improves
Dogs not only help you improve your health but also can help you get a date. People often stop & talk with you when you’re walking a dog. Taking your furry friend to a dog park can lead to strangers striking up conversations with you about your dog.
Your kids will be less likely to have any allergies
Children who are grown up around a dog are less likely to have allergies. In fact, living in a home with a dog can help kids grow up to have an increased immunity to pet allergies later in their life.

In fact, some research has shown that dog owners are much more likely to survive a heart attack compared to those who don’t have a dog.
