How Dogs Can Help with Mental Health – Mind Boosting Benefits of Dog Ownership

Published on June 10th, 2018

We’ve published several blogs about pet ownership over the years. Pets have earned a place in our hearts as loyal companions, and dogs specifically have earned the place of man’s best friend. Most people have or have had a pet, and most people (95%) see their pets as family.

Having someone or something to care for can be very beneficial to people, elderly included. That’s in addition to the biological reactions we have to pets (interaction with dogs has been shown to increase feel-good responses in your brain such as endorphins and dopamine, for example).

For more in-depth research into why dogs are good for our mental health, check out this article from dogOwner.
