Top 10 Best Reasons to Own a Dog

#10

 

Dogs make great walking buddies.

Do you find it hard to motivate yourself to get out of the house for daily exercise? Dogs need exercise and will encourage to get out and stretch your legs as well. There's nothing like a daily walk with your dog to get a light cardiovascular workout and some fresh air. Not only will you improve your health, but your dog will love your for it as well.

Dogs keep your floor clean.

Dogs are like sentient garbage disposals. If you drop it on the floor and its edible, they will eat it. A dog will dramatically reduce your monthly expenditure on paper towels!

 
#8
 

Dogs are great conversation starters.

Studies have shown that walkers experienced significantly more chance conversations with strangers when accompanied by a dog, than when alone. Looking to start a new relationship? Take your dog for a walk. The two best chick magnets: dogs and babies!

 
#7
 

Dogs are excellent space heaters.

Is that expensive space heater keeping you warm at night? If not, buy a dog. He'll be happy to warm up your bed for you, especially if you express your appreciation by scratching that hard to reach spot behind his ears!

 
#6
 

Dogs Are Good Listeners.

Dogs never interrupt. They don't judge you. And they never get bored and wander off like their feline counterparts. They will sit faithfully with their head in your lap and let you vent to your heart's content.

 
#5
 

Dogs live in the present.

One of the biggest psychological hurdles for human beings is learning to live fully in the present. Most people live out their lives either pining for the good old days or looking forward to a future that may never come. Dogs know better. They embrace the present moment for all that it is and, instinctively, yearn to maximize the experience that is life at every opportunity. A good relationship with your pooch can help you learn to do the same.

 
#4
 

Dogs make your home more secure.

You can spend hundreds of dollars for a good security system (which professional burglars can probably circumvent anyway), or you can get a dog. Even small dogs can alert you to the presence of an intruder before an alarm rings, and larger dogs like Dobermans and German Shepherds are especially effective at deterring thieves from choosing you as their next victim.

 
#3
 

Dogs reduce stress.

Studies have shown that dogs reduce stress and even lower your blood pressure. Research has shown dogs can alleviate the effects of stressful life events such as bereavement and divorce, reduce anxiety loneliness and depression, and enhance feelings of autonomy, competence and self-esteem. In fact, research shows that, when conducting a task that’s stressful, people actually experienced less stress when their pets were with them than when a supportive friend or even their spouse was present!

 
#2
 

Dogs Teach You Responsibility.

Thinking about having children? Try a dog first. It's a great way to find out if you're really ready for the responsibility of a little life that is totally dependent on you for practically everything. Of course, they give back plenty in return, but if you find yourself resenting the time required to care for your dog, you probably aren't ready for the larger responsibility of children either!

 
#1
 

Dogs love you unconditionally.

Dogs are loyal and faithful. They don't hold grudges. They accept all of our flaws without resentment. They don't care what we look like or how much money we make. They love us just the way we are and want only to please us. They are well deserving of the title "man's best friend." If only our human relationships were so easy!
