Dog ownership is a very big thing in this day and age.  I know you are probably wondering why I would say that if you are not a dog owner.  For those of you questioning your ownership or just unaware of the reasons why it’s a great thing to have a dog at home, I’m going to provide you with the Top 10 benefits on why Dog Ownership is good.

I have know of these for so long and I’m glad to be able to share my thoughts.

If we don’t share, how will everyone know right?

Here they are:

  1. Children who grow up in homes with pets have less risk of developing common allergies and asthma.
  2. Recent scientific research suggests that playing with dogs may help lower blood pressure.
  3. Kids with pets get outside more to go for walks, run, and play while enjoying the associated health benefits.
  4. Pet owners require fewer doctor’s visits.
  5. Emerging readers often feel more comfortable reading aloud to a pet.
  6. Nurturing a pet is a good way for children to “parent play”, to practice being a caregiver.
  7. Feeding and caring for a pet encourages childhood responsibility.
  8. Children with pets display improved impulse control, social skills, and self-esteem.
  9. Sharing the love and care of a family pet forges an additional common bond among siblings.
  10. Cuddling a pet reduces stress, loneliness and anxiety.
