BENEFITS OF OWNING A DOG

COMPANIONSHIP is just one of the many benefits of owning a dog. That is to say there is more to having a dog share your home with you. If you are one of the many who own a dog, maybe more, you are about to be dazed by some surprising benefits you are getting from having that pet around. In short, your canine companion is significantly improving your lifestyle and eventually your person.

BENEFITS:
• COMPANIONSHIP
You know the saying: dog is man’s best friend. Companionship as a benefit that comes with having a dog in your home goes beyond the dog and you. Let me explain. Have you ever noticed that you interact with people more simply from having a dog and when you take a walk with your dog than when you go out for a walk on your own? The dog becomes a reason for someone to say “hi” or a “goodbye” even before a “hi”, if you know what I mean.

• EXERCISE
Having a dog in your home increases the likelihood of you going out for a walk, either for show-off, to show the dog the world outside your house or just for the fun of it. The fact is you are going out for a walk and taking a walk is a way to exercise. Evidence is starting to show that children with dogs have a lower chance of being overweight, as compared with those without.

• SOCIAL CAPITAL
People who own dog(s) share something in common; they have their dogs as their wings man. They act like they are members of an association; the pets they own become something of common interest, they meet up several times a day during walks or playtime with the dog(s), by chance or by design. These regular meetings have a way of not just strengthening personal relationships but the society as a whole. Maybe truly they are members of an association.

• READING
This may seem unlikely but it is as true as it gets. Those who have dogs at home are prone to become better readers as they spend time reading to their dogs. You know as they say: repetition is the law of lasting impression. This actually is a two-way street: the dog gets attention and the reader becomes a better reader.

• HEALTH/MEDICAL BENEFIT
Of all benefits know this I consider most important. The saying goes: YOUR HEALTH IS YOUR WEALTH. Your furry friend can give you a clean bill of health, according to science there are many ways these canine companions can increase your longevity. Dogs help decrease allergy risks, study have shown; they detect low blood sugar levels, sniffs out cancer, curbs depression etc. Indeed, dogs, and pets overall gives you a clean bill of health.

It’s good to know that having a dog is good for you. However, itis not a wise plan to purchase a pet with only these benefits in mind. Remember that it is a living creature with its own physical and emotional needs.
