A few facts about dog ownership and why we believe connecting with dog lovers can be good for you.

It is believed that one of the benefits of dog ownership is that it helps to prevent heart disease and can lower blood pressure. Dog owners are more likely to go walking, running, and hiking with their dogs on a regular basis and therefore tend to get more exercise than people without a dog. Dog ownership can also help to fight depression and reduce stress. Owning a dog adds joy to you and your pup’s lives.
