Yes, dogs can be stress relievers because according to WebMD.com, ” People in stress mode get into a “state of dis-ease,” in which harmful chemicals like cortisol and norepinephrine can negatively affect the immune system”, so having a dog can put you at a lower risk of being stressed out.

Dogs can help spark up convos as well. The person might want to know more about your canine and boom, a convo just started. That convo could stay at dog talking level or it could go on to something more.

Dogs can make you feel better about yourself in more ways than one. According to DogVacay.com, ” Caring for a dog takes a lot of responsibility and commitment, and it also teaches us to be more patient and less selfish. You also learn to be less focused on yourself and more patient, as pets can sometimes test the patience of even the most tolerant people.”

Dogs encourage their owners to get up and be active and of course being active has its advantages. According to DogVacay.com, “Taking your dog on walks and throwing the ball around makes for good exercise. Apart from the dog walking alone, dog owners were also found to achieve more advanced stages of movement compared to those who own dogs and do not walk them.”

Dogs help with patients dealing with Alzheimer’s and the elderly too
