5 Ways Puppies Make You Happier

Did you know that studies have found that having a dog increases happiness?  Below is a roundup of some of the top benefits of dog ownership. 

Dog owners are more active 

Studies have found that people who own a dog do an average 30 min more of daily activity than those who don't. Even during days with bad weather, dog walkers are more active than non-dog walkers were on the nicest days. Your pup can help you build in additional walking and running routines to your daily life.

Dogs lower your stress levels 

Both adults and kids benefit form their furry pals as they have a calming effect on them. Kids who had a pet dog with them reported feeling less stressed vs having a parent for support. Kids can also experience emotional growth by growing up with a pup.

Companion breeds can be especially calming, as they enjoy spending time in your lap and relaxing with you. Dogs can also be trained to be Emotional Service Dogs for those suffering from mental, emotional, or psychiatric conditions.  

Dogs are good for your heart 

Studies have shown that dog owners have lower blood pressure than non-owners. This is because pets have a calming effect on their owners and help them get more exercise. 

This makes dogs a perfect fit for the elderly, those with high blood pressure, or are otherwise in need of tranquility in a busy lifestyle. 

Dogs help fight loneliness 

Owning a dog can increase your social interactions! Going to the park or for a walk can open up opportunities to meet new people. Pet parents were 36% less likely to feel lonely compared to those who had no pets. This was especially true for elderly patients in need of companionship. 

We can help find the right companion dog breed for senior family member. 

Dogs make you more attractive - even online!
