Adopting a puppy isn’t easy BUT we’ve got 10 reasons that puppy parenting can be beneficial.
Puppies lower stress
Stressed out? Puppies can be supportive in stressful times. Their love and affection have even been known to lower blood pressure.
Puppies are even beneficial for our kiddos
Turn off that Baby Einstein! Kiddos with pups around the house score higher in cognitive, social, and motor development tests than those without.
Puppies are a natural anti-depressant
When humans and dogs interact, “feel good” hormones like serotonin, are released. Proof that pups make us happier.
Puppies keep you silly
Playing with our canine counterparts gives us the opportunity to be our silliest selves. A puppy is here to play, never to judge! So go all out with those cute puppy voices that we all tend to use.
Puppies keep you active
People who walk a dog for twenty minutes daily lose more weight than many people on popular diet plan. (Just remember our sweet bulldog babies DO NOT like the heat.)
Puppies help you make friends
Thank your puppy in advance for all the social help! They’ll help reduce isolation just by getting you out and about more. Most restaurants and bars are going pet friendly so take your best friend with you for Sunday brunch.
Puppies heal the heart
Yes, it’s true. Puppies can actually help heart health. Dog owners are more likely to live a year longer than those without. Puppies = the sweetest medicine.
Puppies help with allergies
Though they can be a trigger for people with allergies, growing up in a home with a pup makes children significantly less likely to develop allergies as adults.
Puppies grow to be loyal friends
Everyone always says dog is man’s best friend. Well, it’s true. The bond you make with a puppy is one of the strongest and they’ll grow to become a your most loyal lifelong friend.
Puppies are unbelievably cute
Yes, puppies possess the ability to make us laugh, smile, and live longer and happier lives but they’re also just adorable and fun to be around!
