Dogs are one of the many things humans love so much; we can’t live without them. They are cute, soft, and they have an amazing personality. On top of that, they can help humans in numerous ways. Dogs are amazing, and they truly deserve the title “a man’s best friend.” Here are nine reasons you should really have a dog.

  1. Dogs help your health.

Studies have shown dogs do many things to help your health. For example, your risk of a cardiovascular disease will possibly decrease when you have a dog. When you talk to and pet your dog, you typically have a lower blood pressure, which means your risk of diseases like the cardiovascular disease is lower than regular.

  1. Dogs help kids’ skin.

If you grew up with a dog, you have a lower risk of getting eczema. Children also have less pet allergies when they grow up with a dog.

  1. Having a dog improves your physical health.

Dog owners are typically more active because dogs also require exercise. This means that dogs most likely require daily exercise to maintain a healthy life and so do you! So it just makes sense; you get daily exercise because you have to walk your dog!

  1. Dogs are wonderful service pets.

Dogs can be trained to do almost anything. One of the coolest traits is being aware of the physical and mental health of humans. Many people with disabilities use trained service dogs to detect if they may have a seizure or any other illness coming.

  1. You will probably miss less school.

People that already have a dog are less likely to miss school or work. This is because dog people have better overall health and are less likely to be sick. Yes, all because of their dog!

  1.  Dogs ease your stress.

If you are like any other average person, you may be dealing with stress in your life. Well, studies have been shown that dogs actually relieve some of your stress! So, if you get a dog or you already have one you will most likely come home with a big smile on your face from just looking at your pooch.

  1.  Saving your life.

Dogs are naturally great protectors; they can protect you from things like burglaries, fire, snakes, and even cancer. Dogs can be specially trained for things like these—anything could happen and it’s nice to know someone has your back!

  1. Dogs get you socializing.

Dogs need to socialize with other fellow dogs, and who takes those dogs to the park? That’s right, humans do. Now, it’s your choice to socialize or not, but humans need socializing as well.

  1. Dogs are simply man’s best friends.

Dogs are extremely loyal and they have your back, no matter what. Dogs connect with humans and it’s very special. Whether you have other friends or not, you know you will always have one amazing, cute, and loyal friend who always has your back.

 

Dogs are amazing and there is no doubt you should have one. After all, they do all these amazing things for us; the least you could do is adopt a new pup at your local shelter and give it a home.
