Dogs help to improve your social life

Your social life tends to improve when you have a dog around you. You tend to interact more with other dog owners, and you easily lose your shyness and tend to interact with people.

Dogs teach you to stretch, drink plenty of water, and stop to smell the roses

You’re likely to see your dog stress at least once or twice throughout any given day. They also tend to stop to smell flowers while walking in the morning, and drink plenty of water once they return inside.

Dogs help with autism, ADHD, and sensory issues

Having a pet helps tremendously with many health and mental issues. Many adults and kids with ADHD have enjoyed a great improvement in their health while keeping a pet.

Dogs can assist with depression

A lot of therapists now prescribe a pet as a way to help people deal with depression.
