Can Canines contribute to the health of a human?

The battle between dogs and cats has been around for a long time now and until now it hasn’t truly been settled.

Firstly dogs take a lot more commitment and effort, however using this commitment in the right way can help you in certain aspects of your life. For example, dogs require walks. Dogs need to be walked as it is part of their instinct, in the wild dogs used to walk and hunt together. They also help dogs maintain good health. Going on regular walks with dogs also help their owners to become healthier. If you believe that you’re overweight or just want to lose weight, consider getting a dog as it gives encourages you to go out and try to lose weight. Therefore walking dogs is not only beneficial to dogs but to humans also as it helps both species to become healthier.
