As a dog lover, owner and chosen companion to several... I'm reminded each day how much dogs enrich my life. But did you know that Harvard Medical School has been researching the physical and psychological benefits of dog ownership.
Get healthy, Get a Dog is the first publication to compile hundreds of studies that have documented the physical and psychological benefits of dog ownership. These studies provide the most compelling picture of the many ways in which dogs enrich our human lives: some are obvious like companionship, defense against depression, longer lifespan but they've also been known to lower cholesterol and even help us to lose weight.
Cheers to ours Dogs!
