Dogs Will Keep You Happy!

August 8, 2019

Forget psychiatrists. Dogs will help your mental health. When we need our spirits lifted, 44 percent of people would rather turn to their dog for emotional support than talk about their feelings with a family member.

Dogs also appear to be the center of affection for many families as well, with 38 percent of people admitting that the family dog is the “person” they show the most love or attention to in their household. 

Just 31 percent of respondents said they show the most affection towards their own children and just 23 percent reported giving their spouse or significant other the most attention!
