5. Always There!
Have you ever made plans with a human companion only to find out 10 minutes before you go out, they made other plans? Well with dogs you really don’t have to worry, because they’re not going anywhere unless you’re the one that takes them! Dogs haven’t quite figured out how to use cell phones yet and call up the neighbor’s poodle to bail on you! You’ll also never eat a meal by yourself again after getting a dog, and they’ll be right there by your side hoping you’ll drop a french fry, no matter what the situation is.
4. Resistance to Allergies
While some may be triggered by dogs for allergies those who’ve grown up in a house with pet dogs become more allergy resistant over the course of their lives, from a study in 2010 at the university of Cincinnati. This doesn’t just mean allergies to animals but reactions like eczema were less likely for children who grew up with a dog by the age they were 4. This tends to strengthens people’s immune systems. However people who owned cats had the opposite effect and became more allergy prone
3. Better Heart Health
Many things about dogs seem to link to better heart health. The exercise, the lower stress level and now just from the act of petting dogs, researchers have noticed that it tends to lower blood pressure as well. A Chinese study showed that dog owners tended to get better sleep at night and weren’t sick as often as non dog owners. Other studies show that dog owners have better cholesterol levels than non dog owners and were more likely to survive a heart attack!
2. They Can Detect Cancer
Your dog could really save your life some day in the future! But is it possible they have the ability to sniff out cancer as well? Stories emerged from the news about a woman who had a dog that would keep licking and smelling the same lump on her body until she finally got it checked out. It turns out the the pup was trying to tell her she had cancer the whole time! This was later backed up by scientific studies. Dogs, like this one in the photo, are now being trained to detect ovarian cancer in women and prostate cancer in men.
After all these different things we’ve mentioned on this list, the most important reason you should get a dog, is because they make the best companions out of any pets. People can’t always be around when you need them to be because they simply have a life of their own. For dogs, you are their life. They rely on you to feed them and bathe and they never want to leave your side. When you’re gone, they wait outside the door until you come home and can’t wait to see you once your back.
