Life Without Dogs… We Don’t Think So!
We all know how cute dogs are and how much fun they are to play with. But they also eat a lot, poop a lot and get into all kinds of mischief. They are expensive, and require a lot of time and attention. So do you really need a four-legged friend? YES, you do! And here are the Top 10 reasons why you need a dog to jazz up your life:
Spending just 15-30 minutes with your dog can help you feel more calm and relaxed, reducing stress and increasing happiness. Playing with your pup increases your brain’s levels of dopamine and serotonin, both of which are neurotransmitters associated with pleasure and tranquility. So the next time you’re feeling down, grab a toy and spend some time with your pup! That wagging tail will be sure to put a smile on your face.
Dog owners have a much higher rate of recovery from being sick than non-dog owners. In fact, humans with pooches who suffer from heart attacks are twice as likely to fully recover as those without! So start cuddling your dog!
Of course! Your dog requires daily exercise, and so do you! Dog owners carry the responsibility of playing with and working their dogs, so it only makes sense that dog people tend to be more active.
Not only do dogs need care and playtime with their humans, but they need time to socialise with other pups too! This means that their humans will have a chance to socialise while they oversee the puppy playdates. Even going on a walk in the neighborhood can bring many new friends around and start many conversations!
The responsibility, patience, selflessness, and commitment that come with having a dog make us stronger, all-around better people.
