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.
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.
