Getting a golden retriever will completely transform your life and not only in the ways you think at first. Besides of all the short term happiness that you’ll experience after you finally bring your dog home, you will also experience long term fulfillment and better health.
Because dogs are not only good for our mental health, but also for our physical health.
Here is how:
Decreased Risk & Prevention of Allergies
Research proves that exposing the kids to animals at an early age may help them to avoid suffering from allergies in the future. So maybe the dander that your golden retrievers leave behind isn’t so bad after all.
Better Heart Health And Lower High Blood Pressure
Studies have shown that dog owners often have decreased blood pressure, as well as triglyceride and cholesterol levels. Studies also found that people with dogs who have suffered a heart attack are better able to recover than those without any pets.
It’s unsure why dogs help reduce a patient’s high blood pressure, but there are studies that reveal an improvement in hypertension for dog owners
Keeping Weight in the Normal Range And More Activity
When you adopt a dog, one thing is for sure – you will be going on way more walks than you have been on ever before. And exactly that’s the reason why golden retrievers are so good for your fitness as well. Goldens are very active dogs that love to play and go on long walks and that’s exactly what you will have to do. All of that will keep you active and maybe even help you to drop a few pounds.
