Adopting a dog can be one of the most rewarding experiences in your life – and the canine’s. Extensive research has been conducted on the benefits of the human-dog dynamic and the following are science-based benefits of choosing to adopt a canine.
Dogs are pack animals and don’t like to be alone any more than people do. They’re highly social and always there waiting to cheer you up, make you laugh, and give comfort and cuddles.
Emotional and Mental Health
Sharing a home with a dog is good for your mental health. Dogs are good therapy. They ease loneliness, relieve stress, alleviate depression and anxiety, and give people another living being to care for. A canine can help you cope with stress and provides you with an increased sense of self-worth, along with a reason to be more social as you interact with others on dog walks and outings. Canines are proven to improve the quality of life for those with PTSD.
Dogs need to be walked regularly and that provides you with beneficial exercise to help you lose or maintain weight goals. Walking and playing with your canine lowers blood pressure and is heart-healthy activity. Studies have shown that people with dogs tend to live longer, even those with a history of cardiovascular problems. Petting your dog for just 10 minutes slows your breathing and heart rate, and relaxes muscle tension. Dogs are particularly helpful for seniors. It’s one of the reasons for the increase in pet therapy programs. Canines are especially beneficial for those with cognitive function disorders. Seniors with dementia that interacted with dogs were less likely to become agitated and were more social.
Studies have demonstrated that women were more likely to give a man their phone number when he had a dog. Men considered women with dogs more approachable. Research also showed that men and women with a dog were rated by others as being more attractive and looking more relaxed.
