Do you feel lonely sometimes? Loneliness is considered to be one of the biggest social issues of our time. However, one of the easy solutions may be owning a pet of any kind as pets reduce the sense of isolation, as well as it develops a greater feeling of safety, creates stronger bonds and grows empathy. Also, have you ever noticed people with a dog in a park gathering and talking to each other? It is one of the great ways to meet other people, connect & make friends.
Owning a pet such as a dog lead to, besides other, many health benefits as it motivates you to spend more time outdoor. Immune function and allergy prevention were improved by having a pet at home. Kids who grew up in a house with a dog have shown to be more physically active and in their adulthood, and they created better emotional connections, shown more empathy and generally, were in better physical condition than non-pet owners. Maybe a dog can make you go for that run in the park you wanted for a long time.
