1. DOGS MAKE THE BEST PSYCHOLOGIST
Are you feeling down or blue, or looking to reduce your stress? If so, it may be time to get a dog. A dog is the best friend that can make us forget all our life’s troubles and change our humor quickly with their irresistible love and cuteness. Dogs are very empathic towards people and will do everything to make us feel happy!
2. EVERY DOG IS UNIQUE
Like humans, dogs are not all the same. Every dog has its unique character traits as they are prone to react differently to situations, which makes each of them unique, interesting, and entertaining! That is why many would compare the dog-human relationship to a human-human friendship.
3. DOGS BOOST OUR SELF-CONFIDENCE
Our level of self-confidence is affected by the way we perceive ourselves and how people in our lives respond to what we say or do. Dogs makes us feel better and enhance our self-esteem as they bring a lot of love and light to our homes.
4. LIVING WITH A DOG IS A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE
Having or living with a dog is a whole different experience from having a fish, a bird, cattle or cat. Becoming a dog parent can be a huge challenge but certainly one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. Even though you may likely lose your favorite shoe to your puppy’s teeth, any dog owner will tell you that all that experience is worth it. It will shape the way you see the world, the way you live and the way you interact with people.
5. A DOG’S LOVE IS UNCONDITIONAL
We, humans, can be unpredictable and unreliable. We can at the flip of a switch change our attitude towards a person, as soon as we find out what its job, marital status, incomes, age, health, or religion is. Well, dogs are oblivious of all these and will show the same love and interest towards any person who shows them affection.
6. DOGS INSPIRE US TO BE SENSITIVE AND BETTER PEOPLE
Dogs can’t use words like people, so we learn how to communicate in other ways, through touch or gesture. As humans, we find that we have to get into a dog’s world which makes us become more imaginative and think harder about what the dog is trying to tell us.
7. DOGS MAKE THE MOST LOYAL FRIENDS
There’s no better confident than a dog! We all have suffered at least once from a bad friendship, where trust was broken and secrets dishonestly revealed. That is why dogs make the best friends you could have. You can have any type of conversation you want and be assured that they will keep your deepest secrets and will probably love you more!
8. DOGS IMPROVE OUR SOCIAL LIFE
Studies have revealed that dogs can help to build human to human friendships and social interactions. Pet owners are 60 percent more likely to meet new people in their communities than those without pets. While walking your dog, you are more likely to grab the attention and comments of different people and this offers an opportunity for you to meet new people and develop new friendships.
9. DOGS MAKE US MORE TOLERANT
Dogs have been known to improve human social skills such as tolerance and cooperativeness. When living with a dog, you learn to live with chaos just for the sake of enjoying their love and companionship. This experience will certainly increase your adaptability sense even for other new events in life! Dogs, inspire us to become tolerant, trustful, loyal, caring, simple people – making us enjoy life more and become less unfriendly.
10. DOGS LOVE OUR COMPANY
Modern life teaches us to be less in need of each other, and this is why we often become strangers to our neighbors and not having a real conversation with anyone for days. Dogs, thankfully, helps us to fill this void and avoids the sense of aloneness.
