Dogs can help you live a longer, better life!
That’s because they can help treat health problems! Let’s look at the statistics:
- According to a study conducted by the people at the University of Manchester in the UK, half of 60% of people confirmed that pets can help with PTSD, anxiety, and other mental health problems
- With a dog around, 54% of adults are more likely to get the recommended physical activity. Arthritis, cardiovascular diseases, and risks involved with a sedentary lifestyle? Less likely to be problems
- With a four-legged companion, people with physical and visual impairments have a 33% higher mortality rate
And according to a study published in Scientific Reports, dogs can sniff out cancers, an incoming seizure, and other internal health concerns!
Fun Fact #1:
Need an explanation about a dog’s night vision superpower?
It’s their whiskers — their whiskers help them see better at night. These features can pick up the subtlest changes in air current.
The result? Dogs receive information such as the shape, size, and speed of things in their environment.
Dogs are amazing, right?
They help keep us healthy, they're winners, and they're fun to be with. That's not even all there is to it!
