Did you know that dogs can help relieve stress? According to Helpguide, dogs, can reduce stress, anxiety, and depression, ease loneliness, encourage exercise and playfulness, and even improve your cardiovascular health. This matters because during these tough times your dog can help you relieve stress, according to powerful patients, dogs increase oxytocin production, which decreases stress and fear. This means having a dog around could decrease stress and increase love.


Dogs help us, by keeping us company when we feel lonely because usually, dogs attract attention to you, making you feel less lonely if you own a pet. According to American Kennel Club, in 2002, another study found that married couples who owned a pet had significantly lower heart rates and blood pressure levels than people without pets. This means that dogs can also help us keep healthy hearts. Service dogs provide a lot of support such as guides and signals. According to CDSS, service dogs help people with disability-related needs. Police dogs provide support for people who are in trouble. Did you know that police dogs are trained to use their noses to sniff out bombs, drugs, people, and other threats too? A therapy dog is a dog that is trained to provide affection, comfort, and support to people usually in hospitals.


In conclusion, humanity would be lost without dogs. We should have more dogs around in our lives because they provide emotional support for us.
