Dogs Before Humans

Dogs. I must say it is not an easy task to raise and train them to be good dogs. You have to have a certain personality in order to be a good dog owner and also be aware of the fact that they’re creatures, not products. They cannot (or rather should not) be discarded like used clothing and if you really want a dog, you have to realize that he’ll be yours for the next 10-20 years.

As a furry pup lover, there is no doubt in my mind that having a dog brings many upsides to my life. I mean, how can I NOT live happily waking up to a smiley face and wagging tail? For those of you who do not yet have a furry friend, or who are planning on adding one to your family, you’ll be glad to hear that there are scientifically proven benefits that dogs bring to each of our lives!

  1. They always have your back. A stranger is ringing your door bell. You are too afraid to answer. No problem, look down and there is your dog barking right at the door. Terms and conditions attached.
  2. They mimic your emotions. Have you noticed your dog’s eyes when your mood is down?
  3. You will exercise more than usual. Obviously, you’ll have to run behind them and make sure he doesn’t ruin your house.
  4. You’ll stress less and be more happy. Petting your dog, playing with your dog, and simply watching your dog can reduce your stress each day.
  5. Healthy heart. Dog owners are much more likely to survive a heart attack compared to non-dog owners.
  6. Grow old gracefully. Dogs offer wonderful companionship for the elderly.
  7. Reflects your personality. Studies say, people who owned toy dogs tended to be more intelligent, while owners of utility dogs like Dalmatians and bulldogs were the most conscientious.
  8. Dogs are loyal. They wouldn’t ever betray you. They’ll follow you everywhere, protect you, and don’t ask for much in return.

Every thing also has its own disadvantages too.

  1. Time commitment. Of course, your dog needs time to play and do his job in the corner of your backyard.
  2. Cost. Price differs from dog to dog.
  3. Someone to watch your dog whenever you go on a trip. Whether a close relative, a friend, or a dog kennel, it needs to be someone who has at least some knowledge about dogs and how to take care of them.
  4. Training is a must. Dogs should also know their limits.

Check before you purchase-

  1. Breed. Dogs can be as different as cars.
  2. First years. The most crucial time of a dog’s life is it’s first few years.
  3. Price. The biggest dogs might not be costly, but very hard to take care of.
  4. Consider adopting rather than buying from an animal breeder. It’s time for the orphan to get a home, isn’t it?

Simply put, they are a human’s best friend.
Because of their heightened sense of smell, sight, and hearing, dogs are extremely intelligent creatures with a loyalty to their humans that is unexpectedly strong. Those with dogs will know–your pups can sense human body language, emotions, and feelings, and this paves the way for an unbreakable bond.
Once you get a dog, you can’t turn back. Cherish them and they’ll love you 100 times more.

As said, a dog is the only one in the world who would love you more than he loves himself.
