5 Benefits of owning a dog (+ An absurd amount of my dog’s pictures)

A lot of people are in the process of considering getting a dog. So it’s logical for people to wonder why getting a dog is a good thing. So here are the things that I found changed for the better when I got my little baby Bella.

First day home

Mental

Having a dog around constantly happy, faithful and willing to lend a paw (no? Ok ) has been scientifically proven to improve your psychological situation.

Physical

As you know dogs need walks. That means you kind of have to get out of bed and walk. (Really Naya? Really?) Anyway this is great for your physical health as it gives you a motive to do more.

Silly Dog

Connection

In the era of social media and disconnection dogs really just want to be with you. Having a someone present (even a dog) is always reassuring.

Good Teacher

Owning a dog means you have to care for it. (I am great at stating the obvious today) Anyway, caring for a dog teaches you how to care for other people as well. This is especially great when you are in a serious relationship or if someday you hope to have a child. You will be so much more prepared to care for someone other than yourself if you already do this for your pet.

Paws

Motive to continue

Especially for people with depression and other relevant psychological disorders owning dogs is said to be pretty beneficial. It gives the you motive to keep going strong since you have a creature who is totally dependent from you.
