Having a dog might not be the only source of happiness but according to Washington Post, dog holders are more willing to get married and own homes than cat owners, in other words, dogs contribute toward life satisfaction.
Moreover, a recent study of 2,000 adults found that dog holders walk around 870 miles (ca. 1,400 km) a year which allows them to be fitter than non-dog holders, and they have overall improved levels of the condition and reduced stress levels.
Also, another study in 2016 found that dog holders scored higher on all aspects of well-being compared to those with cats. In addition to this, analyses have claimed that owning a pet can improve the vessel health and lower symptoms of depression.
However, cat holders shouldn’t be disappointed. surveys have shown that the fact of owning a pet any pet, increases mental and physical human beings.
A survey of 1,000 dogs and cats’ holders over the age of 55 found that pet owners are happy in their jobs, whereas, others said they never felt lonely thanks to their pet.
