People who choose the "backyard roaming" exercise plan for their dogs do not, unfortunately, qualify for this dog-owning bonus.
Squatting frequently, even for mundane tasks like picking up toys (or excrement),
helps develop strength and flexibility, which in turn can improve core and lower body stability.
When you pet a dog, you immediately feel better. Ever thought about why that is?
The parasympathetic nervous system is activated just by being around a dog,
which means that your stress levels will go down and your relaxation levels will go up.
One could reasonably assume that dog owners experience less worry, less loneliness, and greater companionship in their lives.
