REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A DOG
Added on: 9th Mar 2015
YOUR ARRIVAL WILL ALWAYS BE GREETED
WITH THE UTMOST GLEE
Honestly, who doesn’t like coming home to someone
who is absolutely excited to see them?
LOVE, LOVE AND MORE LOVE
There is no question about it. Scientists have shown that dogs do
indeed have a strong emotional tie to their owners; an emotional tie
that is unique within the animal kingdom and can even be stronger
than the tie between humans. It’s safe to say that no other
animal will love you like a dog.
DOGS WANT TO MAKE YOU HAPPY
It’s true. According to studies, one of the major drivers for a dog is
to please his pack leader (you). In other words, a dog’s delight is to
know that you are delighted. Isn’t that delightful?
DOGS LOVE TO GIVE AFFECTION
A recent study found that humans need about 12 good hugs a day to be
healthy. This is a clear indicator of the human need for affection, and I
can guarantee you, no animal is going to give you as much affection
as a dog.
THEY HAVE A POSITIVE IMPACT ON YOUR HEALTH
Studies show that dogs have a positive impact on your health.
Owning a dog has been shown to decrease depression,
blood pressure, and overall stress.
DOG’S HELP YOU MEET YOUR FITNESS GOALS
Research shows that dog owners tend to be in better physical shape.
This is due to the fact that dogs encourage us to walk and play
promoting a more active lifestyle.
DOGS HELP US BECOME MORE SOCIAL
Do you feel like you have a problem being social? Maybe you are a
bit introverted and you want to be a bit more extroverted. You are in luck,
studies show that dog owners tend to be more social than people who
don’t own dogs. This is due to the fact that dogs create a perfect
conversation piece making it easier to strike a conversation
with just about anyone.
A DOG CAN BE TRAINED
This is more of a cool factor, but the fact remains that dogs are very
trainable animals. You can train them to dance, spin, speak, rollover,
get you a can, etc. You want an entertainment showpiece for your party?
Train your dog to do some simple tricks and you’ll own the
limelight (well actually your dog will).
A DOG CAN PROTECT YOU
There isn’t a more loyal and fierce protector than a dog. In fact, studies
show that just owning a dog can be a deterrent of crime. If a burglar is
foolish enough to trespass into a home guarded by a protective dog?
Well, let’s just say that he won’t do that again.
