Health benefits of owning a pet

  • Pets Can Improve Your Mood – it’s hard to stay cranky when someone is rubbing up against your leg and purring or wagging their tail and looking into your eyes.
  • Pets Help control blood pressure
  • Pets Encourage You To Get Out And Exercise
  • Pets Can Help With Social Support – While walking the dog we get to talk to other dog owners, we can join dog training groups and have another outlet in life.
  • Pets Stave Off Loneliness and Provide Unconditional Love
  • Pets Can Reduce Stress – Sometimes More Than People: Are good listeners and love to be stroked.
  • It’s important to realize that owning a pet isn’t for everyone. Pets do come with additional work and responsibility, which can bring its own stress. However, for most people, the benefits of having a pet outweigh the drawbacks. Having a furry best friend can reduce stress in your life and bring you support when times get tough.
