So turns out that not only is dog man’s best friend… but also, man’s lifeline?!
The American Heart Association reports today, that may very well be the case.

Over the course of 10 studies, more than 50 years, and 3million+ participants, scientists have found dog-owners live longer than those who aren’t. In fact— a 24% risk reduction for death from ANY cause.

Dog ownership often leads to:

  • increased physical exercise

  • increased mood, stress reduction, & decreased feelings of isolation or loneliness, increased purpose, drive, & direction

  • increased sense of responsibility, schedule, & positive habit formation
