Roger Caras once said, “Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
There’s something just down-right special about man’s best friend. But did you know that there are actual benefits to having a pet? Yep, the positives of owning that shedding, drooling, tail-wagging ball o’ fur hugely outweigh the negatives.
You’re exercising more.
Seriously, who can resist those big, brown puppy dog eyes begging to go outside for a walk? If you take Spot out for a 30-minute walk every day, just imagine what that will do for your own health.
You’re less stressed.
You have to admit, that a big, slobbery kiss from Spot after a long day at work sure does lighten the stress load.
You’re not lonely.
Pets provide a companionship. They literally become part of your family. And if you’re honest, you’ll admit to having at least one conversation with Spot.
Even the squeakiest chihuahua barks can provide a security system of sort that can alert you to a possible intruder.
With an uncanny sense of smell, many pet owners have reported that sniffing or licking spots that later were reported cancer.
Now that we’ve made it abundantly clear that owning a pet is in our best interest, now what? We certainly can’t keep Spot cooped up inside all day and the weather can be too extreme for an outside-only dog. The solution is a pet door.
