Dogs bring joy and health to your life.
Dogs are truly man's best friend. They offer companionship, unconditional love and support. Not only do they provide us with unconditional love, but they also take care of us when we need it most. Many people have a dog as their best friend and would not be able to live without one. Dogs have been known to help people with mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety by providing them with a sense of comfort and security that they can rely on during hard times.
Dogs also create a sense of belonging in our lives which can make us feel more secure when we are around other people who have dogs as well because they understand what it means to be part of a pack. Dogs have been shown to lower blood pressure, increase heart rate variability (heart rate variability is an indicator of emotional well being), decrease stress hormones (cortisol) and increase serotonin levels which may lead to better concentration levels, less depression and reduced likelihood for suicide attempts among other benefits!
