Dog Care

Caring For Your Dog Can Give YOU A Healthy Boost!

Dog Care

Teaching Kids Empathy

Millions of Americans love their pets and spend lots of money on dog care to keep them happy and healthy. But being a pet owner also has a lot of benefits for the human half of the relationship.  When you care for a dog, according to the U.S. National Institutes of Health, there are physical boosts, like lower blood pressure, lower heart rate and lower cholesterol.  Here are few more:

1)  Being with your pet also reduces your response to stress and helps you to recover from it faster.
2)  Dog care benefits kids in many ways, including helping them develop empathy.  Having a pet is a great way to instill a sense of responsibility by being responsible for dog care.  In addition, caring for a dog can give you the same emotional connection as a human friend. Studies show that the more people befriend their pets, the closer they tend to be to other people.
3)  Dog owners of all ages are more likely to be physically active and less likely to be obese.
4)  For older people, having a dog can keep them socially connected.   Caring for a dog and being socially connected has been shown to help people live longer and avoid physical and mental decline.
