It is a common feeling that fur of cats and saliva of dogs will make you sick. However we do not see the health benefits they provide us. Professionally trained dogs helping blind people walk is a common sight. But you do not need to be physically challenged to enjoy the benefits a pet can bring along. Various surveys and studies have pointed out that people with pets will live longer and are happier than ones’ with no pets.
Today I am going to discuss about dogs and the health benefits they provide. We will keep to the point. One major change that a dog brings to your life is that it changes your life style. That is the thing which gives you immense health benefits physically.
- Increases physical activity – With a dog as a pet you cannot sit and munch potato chips always. He will make you walk him and you will walk along side. This will help increase physical activity which is beneficial for your health overall.
- Reduces Stress – Playing with your dog can be really relaxing. You might be tensed in office with a major problem, but as soon as you come home your dog will take all the stress away. He will play and make you forget the worries.
- A great Friend – As I already mentioned in my previous post, the dog is the man’s best friend. He will be by your side in times of need. Nobody will be able to bully you in his presence. A true friend and companion.
