Having a dog in your life brings fulfillment and even promotes a longer life span! One of the great benefits to owning a dog is the fact you have a live in play-mate! Your dog is a shoulder to cry on, a partner to exercise with, an alarm clock, and over time becomes an integral part of your family! Years of research has discovered that living with pets provides many health benefits!
One of the key benefits is the fact that you will move more! Our culture is busy, and we live "on the go". Oftentimes there is little time for exercise or for play! Several studies have shown that dog owners get more exercise than those who do not own a pet! Studies have also shown that pet owners who play with their pet are in better health and less likely to become obese than those who do not have a pet to play with! Having a dog to play with will also reduce stress and give you a better self-image. A dog gives you a sense of belonging. There is something comforting and uplifting in the unconditional love that a dog will offer you!
So, if you are looking for fun and for ideas to keep you and your dog entertained, look no further!
