Having a dog at home is more than just a friend, an animal you spend time with or have fun with. Scientific studies have shown that quadrupeds affect human health by reducing the risk of disease. Only 19% of children who have dogs have allergies to pets, compared to 33% of children who have not had a dog.
Dog owners can recover faster from any illness and are more likely to live after a heart attack.
Dogs help overcome loneliness, they also facilitate the passage of traumas such as the loss of a loved one. Keeping dogs reduces the risk of depression, increases communication skills and makes you more social.
