Relationship between dogs and owners: 6 benefits of having a dog in your life
What are the benefits of owning a dog?
1- The dog is loyal
Its loyalty doesn't know limits, it’s unconditional.. but why?
Because dogs became loyal creatures centuries ago..
But at the same time he knows that it’s you giving them food and cuddles.. after all that how can he not be loyal?
2- Your dog is good companionship
Even when you’re feeling down, your dog is right there next to you, staring at you with his big loving eyes.
It’s impossible to resist him even when you’re in a bad mood, he’s alway a positive note in your life.
But mostly when you own a dog, he’s a crucial part of your life, becoming a “shadow” in your everyday life. That’s why when your dog is not here anymore your life feels empty…
3- He’s always happy to see you
It's the best feeling when you’re coming home after a rough day and your dog is right there to greet you, moving his tail and jumping up to give you a lick showing you all the love he has for you.
Even when you’re out for 10 minutes… for him when you come back it’s like you’ve been out for an eternity.
And if your day at work went bad, you’ll know you have your dog right there for you giving you all the cuddles and love, making your day way better.
4- He makes you appreciate the little things in life
Did you notice it? your four-legged friend lives in the moment, appreciating every single little thing in his life.
Maybe that’s why you have such a strong bond with him, because he inspires you to live your everyday life in a better way, and appreciate your time with family and friends.
5- He loves you unconditionally
Did you notice? The love your dog has for you has no limits.. it lasts forever, without judgment or resentment
your dog doesn't care about your woes, they will still love you no matter what.
Dogs are not as complicated as humans!
6- He keeps you healthy
According to a recent study published in Nature, dog owners seem to have more benefits in regards to their health than people who don’t own them…In fact, whoever owns a dog will be much healthier thanks to a more active lifestyle.
How many walks do you do with your dog in a day? even just to go potty.
Owning a puppy means going out way more, taking them to daily strolls and this is an advantage to both us and our dog.
More studies suggest that women sleep better when they cuddle with a dog compared to when they fall asleep by a fellow person. ( a snoring husband, maybe?)
So next time you have insomnia, cuddle up with a dog!
