Health Benefits Of Dogs:
We tend to forget the important health benefits of dogs bring into our lives. As well as the physical benefits, we also benefit emotionally.
They Help Us With Stress:
Around dogs, studies have shown that people perform stressful tasks much better. In addition, the dog can actually lower your blood pressure. Neurochemicals called serotonin and dopamine, are increased and they help one to remain calm in stressful situations.
They Help To Keep Us Active:
Overall dog owners are usually fit because they get out walking with their dogs. Even if they don’t feel like walking, we feel the responsibility of taking the dog out.
We benefit by keeping mobile and healthy as we get older. This applies to both the dog and owner. Both have a better quality of life. In general, it means fewer visits to the doctor and to the vet.
They Help Us With Depression.
It has been found through research, that people who own dogs are less likely to be suffering from depression than non-owners. If you think about all the greetings, especially after a bad day, how can you not be uplifted? It can only make you smile.
