BBC is running an article about how owning a dog can increase your lifespan. They mention that having a dog around will lower blood pressure and cholesterol. This could be due to the all the walks you take your dog on. A psychologist who had input in the article even say that having any pet makes a person healthier then average population.
Dog owners also suffered fewer minor ailments and serious medical problems. Dogs aid in the recovery of heart issues and other serious illnesses. They even help reduce stress!
I too have noticed that customers who come in with their dogs are generally happy people. There’s something about dogs that just make you feel comfortable and at ease.
