Benefits of Having a Dog

century_mans_BF
Healthier Heart – Your dog may make you less likely to get heart disease. Why? Dog owners walk more and have lower blood pressure than people who don’t have dogs.
Stress Soothers – Petting your cat or dog feels good. It can lower your blood pressure, helps your body release a relaxation hormone, and cuts down on levels of a stress hormone.
Better Mood, More Meaning – People with pets are generally happier, more trusting, and less lonely than those who don’t have pets. They also visit the doctor less often for minor problems.
Protection for Allergens – Babies raised in families that have pets may be less likely to get allergies and asthma, some studies show.
Social Butterfly – People who use wheelchairs say that other people make eye contact with them more often and ask if they can be of help when they’re with their dogs.
