My Dog

Numerous studies show that having a dog as a companion brings great benefits to humans. Mental health and physical health are two of the benefits I get from spending time with my dog. Petting a dog has been shown to lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety. It also reduces loneliness by providing companionship. Walking my dog keeps me active — even on those days when I want to stay at home and do nothing, having a dog who needs you to take them out and who gets so much joy out of a hike in the forest or a walk around the neighborhood, is a great motivator to get moving. Finally, having another creature who gives you endless unconditional love, is always happy to see you, and is dependent on you, is just a great way to live. For me, there is really just no substitute for having my dog in my life. And you?
