Why you should have a dog

why you should have a dog

Why you should have a dog is not a tough question to answer. Both humans and dogs are social creatures. They became companions thousands of years ago. A recent study shows that dogs split from gray wolves about 32,000 years ago, and that since then, domestic dogs’ brains and digestive organs have evolved in ways very similar to the brains and organs of humans. Hence, making them compatible and eligible to live together.

Not satisfied? Here are some more variables.

1. Ideal confidant-

Dogs can read our feelings, emotions, expressions and body language. This makes them a very good friend. They are the most loyal companions one can have. Nothing equals those sloppy welcome kisses while greeting you at the threshold or those random hugs on a gloomy day. Their love is truly unconditional.

2. Improved quality of life-

Dogs are very active animals. They are natural athletes, chasers and adventure freaks. Dogs need playing & exercising as much as humans do. They follow a daily routine for eating, pooping and napping in particular. An ever-willing playmate is always going to keep you on your toes. Hence, a healthier dog makes for a healthier owner. So grab a leash and improve your physical wellbeing.

3. Smart & Alert animals

Dogs are very intelligent creatures. They remember faces and scents. They are very good at guarding their zones. As an innate quality, they are always aware of their surroundings. Dobermans, German Shepherds, Bullmastiffs, Rottweilers, Akitas and Appenzeller Sennenhund are some breeds that make excellent guard dogs. Besides this, in general, if dogs are trained properly, they can assist and aid the differently abled and the old.

4. Stress Busters-

Petting a dog can relieve stress in just 10 minutes, a new study shows. Playing with a dog increases our brain’s levels of dopamine and serotonin, both of which are neurotransmitters associated with pleasure and tranquility. They keep our spirits high when we feel low. Researchers at WSU found that when people took care of dogs for just three months, they showed significant drops in blood pressure and reactivity to stress. Furthermore, dogs are known to keep cardiovascular diseases at bay.

5. Strong Immunity-

Yes, it’s true! Humans with dogs have a better immunity and recover from illnesses quickly. Also, kids who grow up with dogs have a lower risk of developing allergies, rashes, skin infections, etc. Scientists have revealed that exposure to dogs during early life may protect against eczema and reduce asthma symptoms in childhood.

IT’S REAL-

Dogs are good, both, for our mental and physical health. You may talk to a dog parent like me or spend a couple of hours with your friend’s dog to experience it. There is always a fur buddy waiting to listen to you with the utmost patience, love you more than himself and to always be your partner in crime.πŸ˜‰

Certainly, pets, especially dogs, can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, ease loneliness, encourage exercise and playfulness, and even improve your cardiovascular health. Caring for an animal can help children grow up more secure and active. Pets also provide valuable companionship for older adults.

A dog will never wake up one day and decide he doesn’t love you anymore. Instead his love for you grows stronger each day.

Thank you for your input ma’am!

A dog is a compassionate friend, an entertainer, a protector and a teacher.
