Hey, did you know? It's Hug Your Hound day. There are an estimated 900 million dogs worldwide. That means an awful lot of cuddles to go around today, and every other day for that matter.
There are many undeniable and scientifically proven benefits of having a canine companion. Dog owners tend to be a lot more physically active which translates to healthier hearts, less doctor visits and longer lifespan overall. Even beyond the physical benefits, dogs have been shown to genuinely love us just as much as we love them. Dogs have the same positive brain reactions as their owners when they see each other. Any dog owner will attest to the strong bond they share with their pet and majority of owners consider their dogs a part of their family. This helps reduce stress levels and feelings of loneliness, especially for older people who statistically don't have as many social interactions.
