14 Happy Dogs Show You the Right Way to Relax

on Jul 07, 2017

I love dogs. There, I said it…and I may not be alone with this infatuation. In a study that I conducted, a vast majority of people polled were “pro dog.” I did get some people who also expressed being “pro cat,” but no one polled in this personal survey was “anti dog.”

I could easily write 200+ pages extolling the many virtues of dogs, but instead I would like to focus on one specific aspect, and that is their ability to calm us down and ease stress.

According to Harvard Health Publications, “Pets have been shown to lower blood pressure, improve recovery from heart disease, and even reduce rates of asthma and allergy in children who grow up with a Fido or a Frisky in the house. Pets also improve people’s psychological well-being and self-esteem.”

Even just looking at a dog can have positive impacts on your mental health. So to help you get ready for the weekend, here are 14 happy dogs getting their relaxation on.
