Dogs are good for your health

Dogs are good for your health. In addition to just getting you out for regular walks, we are natural mood enhancers! I walk my person for at least an hour a day, and I keep her laughing all the time.

Check out this great slideshow on the 27 ways pets can improve your health. Just a few examples:
  • In as little as 15 minutes, hanging with your pup can reduce your anxiety level
  • Petting (and belly-rubbin') are known to reduce a human's blood pressure
  • Having a pet to take care of can help you deal with depression
  • Growing up in a pet-household means you will suffer from less allergies in the future
