Top 5 Reasons dogs make the very best of Furr-ends

Almost everyone has heard the expression ‘man’s best friend’ (in reference to our precious pooches). But, how many of you have stopped to think of the top reasons dogs are known for their unconditional loving friendship? 

Let’s take a metaphorical stroll through the acreage that is memory lane (with our beloved pooch right by our side), and discover the top five reasons dogs make the very best of furr-ends.


1. Loyalty 

<Insert your pet’s name here> is fiercely loyal, right? Their love and loyalty is undivided. Unlike some other fair-weather folk, your pooch will be by your side come hail, rain or shine. 

It won’t matter to your canine bestie(s) what you drive, what you wear, the size of your bank account or how your hair looks. They will love you for you, because you are their human. Pretty plain and simple, and no politics. And here’s a hint for nothing; the more you love them, the greater the love you’ll get in return.


2. Companionship

Don’t pretend you’ve never had a day where you could be bothered going for a walk/ getting dressed/ getting off the couch. I’ll take a stab in the dark and say your beautiful bestie was right by your side with a wag of the tail and a head under hand. 

Dogs afford the greatest company and tender loving care you could hope for. If you’ve never had a dog lick (happy or sad) tears off your face, you’ve missed something special. Oh, and would you like a free furry lap rug with that company?


3. Dog ownership is good for your heart… literally. 

You can’t argue with Science. And all the research indicates that pet ownership is good for your cardiovascular system. Amazing hey? Think about food, usually all the things that are fun are bad for you. Not dogs though. You get the health and fun in one. 


4. Social benefits 

If you’ve ever felt like getting out and meeting people, there’s no better ice breaker than a canine companion. For some unknown reason it’s far more socially acceptable to stop and chat with a fellow dog admirer than a perfect stranger. Getting out and about with your pooch is a fabulous way of meeting people… even potential love interests. At least that’s what PetsLoveZone has overheard… ;-) 


5. Dog ownership can help maintain good general health

Let’s be frank, the benefits of dog ownership to our waistlines shouldn’t be under estimated either. How often would you walk in the dark amidst the freezing grips of winter if it wasn’t for that special sidekick needing a good stroll? Admit it, you wouldn’t. But I bet you feel better once you’ve taken that proud- pooch- showing walk and breathed that icy fresh air in. Furthermore, some research suggests that pet ownership correlates to a bolstered immune system and less allergies. 

It must be said also, that while dogs are regularly touted as ‘man’s best friend’ we ought not to forget our lovely women owners. When Marilyn Monroe sung about diamond’s being a girl’s best friend, I bet she hadn’t owned a dog. 

If you’re a dog owner and lover, I hope I’m preaching to the converted here. But, for those of you less familiar with our canine companions, rest assured, dogs and humans are like a match made in heaven. It’s probably worth noting that dog is god spelt backwards. Ever wondered if they’re a gift from ‘up above’? At the end of the day, dogs and humans are like kindred spirits. All we both really want and need (food, water and shelter aside), is love.

    The greatest fear dogs know is the fear that you will not come back when you go out the door without them. So take them at every opportunity, they deserve it and you will feel better with a joyful, playful, excited, appreciative partner.
