Deciding whether to add a 4-legged-friend to the family can be a big decision. How much time will I have to invest? Can I afford it? Am I ready? These are just some of the questions you may be asking yourself. While your slippers may disappear and fur covered clothes may become the usual around the house it can be super rewarding...
1. You'll Exercise More
It may not seem obvious but getting out for a 30 minute walk a day really adds up!
2. Your Social Life Will Improve
Dog owners like talking about their dog to other dog owners. Plus it's just another reason to strike-up a conversation with someone you just met.
3. Your Kids Will Be Less Likely To Have An Allergy
Living in a home with a dog can help kids grow up to have an increased immunity to pet allergies later in life.
4. They're Good For Mental Health
Dogs will also greet you with excitement, whether you were gone for 5 minutes or 5 hours.
