The Benefits Of Having A Dog – National Dog Day

They don’t call dogs mans best friend for no reason. If you have a dog then you know just how much happiness they bring us. Whether they’re running around the house, getting into something they should or snuggling up next to you in bed, you just can’t help but love them. I know personally growing up with a pup was probably the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

But what y’all may not know is that dogs are actually really great for our health, both mental and physical. When playing with dogs there is an endorphin released in the brain that chemically causes you to be happier. There aren’t many people who are not dog people and that is exactly why I wanted to share this graphic PuppySpot put together to bring y’all some amazing information about dogs and what they do for our health.

As you can see from the graphic above, dogs are good for many different parts  of your life and health. Dogs are good for your heart, mind, and body. But like I said before, if you’ve ever had a dog then you know all these things are true. Like I was saying before with the endorphins that are released when playing with dogs that make you happier, well that also helps with your heart. Studies have been done that have proven that owning and loving a dog can affect the health of your heart.

I love you so much Err 💕💕💕

As far as the head goes, this is obviously what I was talking about earlier with the endorphins. I know I keep bring up the endorphins but it’s because that is so important! Dogs can, and probably will be a total stress. They will chew up your shoes, get into the trash, scratch up the doors, but you will always love them. Those times where they bring you their toy to play with, or they come and cuddle up next to you when you’re sad is exactly why they are mans best friend.

Never forget those days when they were puppies and you could pick them up in one hand. Or the days when they just laid in bed with you.

All I need is love and a dog.

Love, Megan Anne

    Ok so I’m one of those rare people that don’t love dogs, so my family had a difficult time convincing me to get one. We’ve had ours for 4 years now and I can’t imagine our family without her! I can totally see how they are beneficial to our health and we’ll being now. Maybe it took a very special doggie like ours to open my eyes!

    OMG! I love dogs! I’m a crazy dog lady, ya know? 🙈I’m the type of person that says hi to a dog first before ever addressing a word to the owner, lol. I agree with you, dogs have a huge impact on one’s life and health. I’m amazed at how loving and loyal they are. I have two dogs, Frijola, a black Labrador, and Luna, a mixed breed between Neapolitan Mastiff and Doberman…these two are my babies! 😍 I loved your post, such a great read! 🙂

    I definitely think having my two fur babies has benefited my life in many ways! I love them so much!

    I always had a dog (and usually several other assorted animals) growing up and I loved having pets. I know that there are so many benefits to having a dog in the family but I just have to wait until my kiddos are a little bit older. 🙂

  • My dog has helped me in so many areas of my life! He helps me stay fit and be less anxious. Didn’t realize today was national dog day. 🙂 Gonna have to spoil Koji now!
