You + Dog = Health & Happiness


  • Dog owners are less likely to suffer from depression than those without pets
  • Dog walking increases social interaction. You’ll make new friends in your neighbourhood
  • Heart attack patients with dogs survive longer than those without.
  • Dog owners generally have a more robust immune system.  In fact, dog owners visit the doctor less frequently and are less likely to be on medication
  • Dog owners generally have lower blood pressure and cholesterol than non-dog owners
  • Pet-owning children have fewer days off school due to sickness
  • Playing with a dog can elevate levels of serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax
