Benefits of sharing your life with a dog
Have you ever wondered how you might explain to others the bond you share with your dog? Well wonder no longer since that special bond has been officially recognised by the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) in 2006 as “a mutually beneficial and dynamic relationship between people and other animals that is influenced by behaviours that are essential to the health and well-being of both”. As simple as that!
After adopting a dog, people generally tend to observe a number of improvements in their day-to-day lives; they report fewer headaches and colds, and are generally in a better mood. So is it a perception or a reality? In order to explore and reveal the true benefits your relationship with your dog brings to you, the WALTHAM Centre for Pet Nutrition have conducted scientific studies, which have led to many publications, on the link between dogs and health benefits.
