Dog owners Love Their Dogs
If you’re the kind of person that loves dogs and brings your dog everywhere, this might be the perfect post for you. We’ve collected scientific evidence that proves dog lovers are better people than other people—and we have the words to prove it!
Dog owners care more about dogs than other people.
- We know this because dog owners are more likely to care about their dogs than other people. And caring about something is a sign of empathy.
- If you love your dog, it’s because you care about him or her and want the best for them. That’s why we’re also more sensitive to the feelings of others—and there’s nothing wrong with that!
- Finally, we care so much about our pets that we’ll go out of our way to be kind to others and help them out when they need it.
A dog’s heart rate and breathing will slow down when they’re around their owner.
Your dog’s heart rate and breathing will slow down when they’re around their owner. This is because dogs are more relaxed, which means that they can focus on what you have to say instead of bouncing off the walls. They also have a better chance of getting along with other dogs in your family if they’re relaxed and calm. If you want your dog to be happy, then make sure that everyone in the household is happy too!
Dog owners are more likely to be empathetic.
People who have dogs are more likely to be empathetic than those who don’t. A study from New York University shows that dog owners have heightened levels of empathy, and can better identify other people’s emotions than non-owners.
Another study found that people who own dogs are more likely to help strangers—a finding that suggests dog owners may be more empathetic because they see their own pet acting in ways similar to how they would act when faced with a situation that requires compassion.
There is also evidence that having a dog can make you feel better about yourself: When researchers at the University of Missouri asked participants if they owned a dog, those with one reported having happier days than those without them (even after controlling for factors like age, gender and marital status).
The reason? “People who care for pets may benefit because animals provide unconditional love and support, which may increase self-esteem,” says lead author David Brent.
Dog owners are less likely to suffer from depression.
There are countless benefits to owning a dog, but here are just a few of the ways they can improve your health:
- Dogs make you feel better. Dog owners experience less depression and report higher overall life satisfaction than non-owners. They also enjoy increased energy levels and lower blood pressure.
- Dogs are good for your mental health. The simple act of cuddling with a dog lowers stress levels, encourages optimism, and promotes feelings of self-worth—all factors that contribute to our overall sense of happiness.
- Dogs encourage physical activity (and not just because you have to walk them). According to research conducted by the University College London in 2006, owning a dog correlates with an increase in physical activity compared with non-ownership among both adults and children alike; this is especially true for those who do not get regular exercise while they’re out walking their furry friend!
Dog lovers love their dogs!
You know what’s great about dogs? They’re the best. That’s right: Dogs are a part of the family, loyal and loving, always there for you. They’re always happy to see you and make great listeners—they’ll listen to your problems no matter how big or small. A dog will never judge you, because he doesn’t know how to judge things at all!
And don’t forget how good for your health owning a dog is! The benefits of pet ownership include decreased risk of heart disease, improved mental health (especially in women), lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels and even fewer visits to the doctor overall!
I hope this blog post has inspired you to go out and cuddle with your dog. It’s the perfect thing to do when you’re in need of some puppy love!
