10 Ways Dogs Make Humans Healthier

maria@sassydogfashions.com

The importance of dogs to man is not just in serving as pets in the homes. There is more to having it on a dog leash and moving around with your dog. There are health benefits human beings get from dogs, and to be candid, these are many, but in this write up, I will be sharing with you ten ways dogs can make you healthier.

1. Dogs can help to lower blood pressure.

According to research that was carried out among those that usually have interactions with dogs and those that do not, it was discovered that those with dogs have lower blood pressure compared to those not having anything to do with these lovely pets. And those with higher blood pressure discovered that they were recording lower blood pressure after they started interacting with dogs. They have the ability to take pressure off you.

2. Dogs help their owners to have healthier hearts.

When you laugh a lot, it has a positive effect on your heart. This is part of what you get when you have a dog. With various dog costumes available in pet store or pet shop, you can dress up your dogs in funny ways that make you smile. And dogs also have that capacity to do funny things without being dressed in funny ways. This has been backed by some studies that show that people having dogs have good heart rates compared to those who do not have.

3. Dogs have the ability to detect cancer.

Though they are not doctors but various studies have shown the ability of dogs in detecting different forms of cancer: lung cancer, breast cancer, bladder cancer, colon cancer and so on. This they do by always sniffing out the affected parts.

4. Dogs also help in lowering cholesterol and triglycerides.

A research carried out discovered that beyond having dog coats on your dog, it can lower your cholesterol and triglyceride levels. According to the research, pet owners have lower plasma triglyceride levels than non-pet owners and male pet owners have significantly lower cholesterol.

5. Dogs can enhance your mood.

When you own a dog, hardly will you be moody because it will always be there to keep you in company and make things that will get you out of your moody state.

6. Growing up with dogs help to reduce allergies.

Based on a research conducted in University of Virginia, it was discovered that children who lived with pets longer have higher probability of not having pet allergies in the future. And another study gave a positive correlation between the number of pets in various homes and the likelihood of babies developing allergies. It was discovered that when two or more pets were present, the likelihood of an infant developing allergies decreased significantly by 77%.

7. Having exercise with a dog is a good way of relieving arthritis pain.

If you have arthritis or you know someone with it, spending time exercising with dogs can provide a bit of relief from its pains.

8. They keep you active.

A research also concluded that dog owners have better odds of achieving fitness goals than non-dog owners. This is because they tend to be much more likely to walk for at least 150 minutes weekly with their dogs with the dog leash.

9. Dogs boost your immune system.

Some studies have it that infants who grow up with a pets in their homes are less likely to get sick compared with those who don’t have pets. Likewise, another research found out that petting a dog increase study subjects’ secretion of antibody immunoglobulin A which helps to increase the immunity to diseases.

10. Dogs can increase your life expectancy.

Spending a quality time with your dog can just be the magic you need to long life. This is obvious from some of the studies shared in the points above.

1. Scheduling An Appointment With Your Veterinarian.

All week you have been running about your work. Scheduling this appointment with your veterinarian is especially important when your dog has not been exercising regularly. Visiting your veterinarian with your dog to discuss your dog can be one way to spend a Sunday with your dog. You will get to know so many things about your dog, which you have been missing for the past a few weeks.

2. Leash Train Your Dog On Sunday.

You can take your dog for a run. If you think your dog is active, part of your perfect day can surely involve taking him out for a restorative run. A good run will not only increase your dog’s stamina and strengthens his muscles, but will also build up a strong bond between you two.

3. Go Hiking With Your Dog.

If you and your dog enjoy outdoor exercise, then you can also go for hiking with your dog. A hike will not only allow him to explore the outdoors but also he would be able to experience new things in his environment. Make sure you don’t miss to pack plenty of water, poop bags, and a first-aid kit for your dog just in case if there is some emergency.

4. Going To The Beach With Your Dog.

If you live near a dog-friendly beach and the Sunday is hot enough to enjoy splashing water on each other, then going to the beach with your god will be a perfect day. In hot summer Sunday, even dogs love to run in the sand, splash in the water, and generally enjoy going outdoors. Just keep in mind that you find a shade for him and take plenty of water to keep him cool and well hydrated. Also, a towel and a sunblock will be a great help.

5. Going To The Park With Your Dog.

Another nice way of spending a great time with your dog is to take him to some dog-friendly parks and let him unleash fully. Chances are you may meet other dog owners also with their dogs in the park. Your dog will love playing with other dogs for sure. Or else, take a ball or disc play Frisbee or fetch with your dog. Believe me, your dog will surely have fun and love you for all those great moments!! This can be ‘a perfect day’!!

Before making your way home after the perfect dog-friendly day stop by a Coffee shop, of course, the one which is for both the humans & the hounds, grab a coffee for yourself and some doggy ice cream for your pooch!! ♥♥

5 Hacks For A Busy Pet Parent

maria@sassydogfashions.com

Life isn’t always slow, gentle and merry like we always wish, sometimes it gets really rough, ugly and fast. We all know how it feels to have our weeks totally filled to the brim with appointments, outings, meetings and doing parenting tasks like preparing for breakfast, lunch or doing laundries. And to make things worse, sometimes nothing seems to work out right, so we keep on handling a crazy crisis that just keep on popping up from everywhere. We end up being the first one up and the last ones to call it a day and get in bed.

During times like this, owning a pet can be a big pain in the ass. Don’t get me wrong, we love our pets so much and can’t change them for anything in the world. However, it becomes very difficult to provide them with the love and care they need while juggling other more tasking issues at the same time. We know how that feels, and have written this article with the top 5 hacks to help make your life easier when it comes to taking care of your pet friend.

1. Do you have a dog that loves to dig up the yard?

We know the horror of coming back home after a busy day only to find your yard looking like a war front with big holes everywhere. Well to solve this, you can try making your dog its own personal “doggie sandbox” and to ensure they only do their digging business in there, you can reward them with a treat for using it. This way they easily learn where it is acceptable to dig.

2. Dealing with bad breath

We know how stressful and time consuming it is to get your dog to stay still and allow you to brush his teeth but ignoring this task because of your time constraints can only get worse as they grow older. Sooner or later their breath becomes so bad that they make you feel a little repulsive. Well, they are a few ways to solve this:

  • Sprinkle Parsley over their meal: the antimicrobial herb has healing properties that strengthen your dog’s immune system while still helping fight and get rid of bad breath.

  •  

  • Smear doggie toothpaste on your dog’s favorite toy: this way your dog gets totally clean teeth and fresh breath while playing with his favorite toy without even knowing it.

3. Handling the fur crises

Fur crises, one of the first crises you will encounter as a pet owner. You can try vacuums but I can assure you “it’s a waste of time” instead you want to get a rubber glove, wet it and then begin your cleaning. You simply run it over everywhere you believe there might be furs present and watch how easy it glues to the rubber glove making cleaning very easy and less time-consuming.

4. Do you have a fast eater?

If you have a dog that is a fast eater, then chances are high that you must have experienced the sheer anger of having them wanting more food just a few minutes after you fed them and they disturbing you for it. They will follow you, whine about it and make it nearly impossible for you to focus and carry out other tasks until you accept their demands. Well, the best way to solve this dog hostage situation is by simply placing some kind of obstacle in the middle of their food, this way they would have to eat around it. The obstacle can be anything or even their favorite toys and will help in slowing down their eating speed.

5. Handling bored dogs

How do you entertain your pets when you need to be out over an extended period of time to run errands or you just want to be left alone while in the house doing chores? Well, the best option for you is to simply get treat puzzle toys. Yes, it solves the problem of keeping them occupied for as long as you want to give you more time to do other things without worrying about your dog tearing up the house or doing crazy things out of boredom.
