As a furry pup lover, there is no doubt in my mind that having a dog brings many upsides to our life. HOW CAN WE NOT live happily waking up to a smiley face and wagging tail and even wet kiss from your furry BFF ? it turns out pets have the ability to make us healthier. For those of you who do not yet have a furry friend, or who are planning on adding one to your family. We put together a list of how our pets, particularly dogs, can make us happy, healthy, fit, smiley people.
1. Good for Our Heart
Studies show that talking to and cuddling your pooches are often accompanied by lower blood pressure, and that means a lowered risk for a myriad of different illnesses.
2. They increase your mood dramatically
Spending just 15-30 minutes with your dog can help you feel more calm and relaxed, reducing stress and increasing happiness. So the next time youre feeling down, grab the newest toy from your PetBox.in and spend some time with your pup! That wagging tail will be sure to put a smile on your face.
3. They can sniff out cancer
A black lab named Marine could save your life. The specially-trained eight-year-old dog can detect when a person has colorectal cancer 91 percent of the time just by sniffing the person's breath. And if she smells stool, she can detect whether the person has colorectal cancer with 97 percent accuracy. It's estimated that a dog's sense of smell is up to a million times better than a human's.
4. Help's you quit smoking.
In one study, 28 percent of smokers who owned pets reported that knowledge of the harmful effects of second hand smoke on their pets would motivate them to quit.
5. They protect children from skin conditions.
Children who grow up with dogs have a lower risk of developing eczema and would also develop fewer pet allergies.
6. Improves your physical wellbeing and encourages a healthy fitness routine.
As dog requires daily exercise. Dog owners carry the responsibility of playing with and working their dogs, so it only makes sense that dog people tend to be more active and fit.
7. We're More Social with A Dog
Yes, not only do dogs need care and playtime with their humans, they do need time to socialize with other pups as well. This means that their humans will have a chance to socialize while they oversee the puppy playdates. Those of you with pups know that even going on a walk in the neighborhood can bring many friends
8. Stress Buster
Notice the increasing trend in workplaces allowing dogs to come to work with their humans? Theres a reason for that! Studies have shown that people who take their dogs to work have lower stress levels during the workday. It is not only at work they would help us decrease stress levels, when we are home from a day long work cuddling a dog will help us to lower stress levels.
The responsibility, patience, selflessness, and commitment that comes with having a dog makes us stronger, better people. Dogs have proven that they improve our physical and mental health, as well as the health of those around us.
10. Dogs Make Us Laugh
People who own dogs laugh more, according to a study published in the journal "Society & Animals." People who owned dogs and cats tend to laugh more than the one who owned no pets.
11. Dogs Make Us Genuinely Happy
Just the simple act of making eye contact with your furry friend can release the feel-good chemical called oxytocin. In a study that measured oxytocin levels from two groups of dog owners, the group that were instructed not to look directly at their dog had lower oxytocin levels than the other group that made regular eye contact. Another study found that dog owners who relied on their dogs for social fulfilment reported that "they were less depressed, less lonely, had higher self-esteem, were happier, and tended to experience less perceived stress."
12. Dogs can strengthen the bonds between humans.
A recent study found that people who have strong connections to their pets also have social and relationship benefits. The researchers surveyed 500 18- to 26-year-old and found that those who had "strong attachment to pets reported feeling more connected to their communities and relationships." They also found that the more attached a person was to an animal as a teenager and young adult, the more empathetic and confident he or she was.
13. They could be your cure for loneliness.
Studies have shown that in people 60 years of age and older, owning a dog (or a cat) were four times less likely to be diagnosed as clinically depressed. The studies and researches prove that, compared with non- pet owners, pet owners made fewer medical visits over the course of a year.
14. Dog could make you more attractive to potential love matches.
According to a study conducted by Dog's Trust, the United Kingdom's largest dog welfare charity, when they surveyed 700 people, 60 percent said that owning a dog can make people more attractive, while 85 percent think people are more approachable when they are with a dog. Even more, it could matter what kind of dog you own. Certain dog breeds are more likely to attract members of the opposite sex than others. Men noted that they judged women with Chihuahuas as dumb, hot and easy; while women said they viewed men with bulldogs as one-night-stands. However, women really like men who owned Labrador or golden retrievers.
