We love our pets and it's no question that dogs give unconditional love and loyalty to their humans. But, beyond companionship, there are numerous benefits to owning a dog. Lets take a look at the top three ways your dog is improving your life!
Dogs need regular walks, just like humans. A walk is good for blood circulation, allowing you to stretch your legs. And, a little fresh air helps you start and end the day on a good note with a boost of oxygen and vitamin D. A study found that those who live with a dog exercise about 30 minutes more per week than those who don’t. Research also shows that owning a dog decreases blood pressure, cholesterol levels and triglyceride measures (which helps you stay healthy and live longer). Now those are life-enhancing benefits we can all bark about!
Beyond physical health, dogs have a positive impact on our mental health too. In general, being healthy makes you happier, but exercise also releases endorphins generating a positive reaction to your brain. When you combine this with spending time with your dog, you are sure to be more content and have a lower chance of being one of the 40 million adults who suffer from depression. Further, studies suggest that after 15 to 30 minutes of petting a dog, people can experience lower levels of cortisol (a stress hormone) and gain a higher level of oxytocin (a happy hormone). How can you do anything but smile when you see a puppy’s cute face?
Lets face it, dogs make everything better. Sitting in traffic or have a long car ride? Bring your pup! Running and errand to a store that is dog friendly? Bring your pup! Your dog LOVES going out and just being with you, plus people will stop and greet your furry friend, which brings smiles to other people’s lives as well. And who knows, your pet might make a new friend (or you could too?).
