Life’s Better With A Dog

Life’s Better With A Dog


Before my dog came into my life, I was an average guy who occasionally took a jog and got wicked hangovers on weekends. Now, he keeps me in shape, curbs my drinking, and makes sure I’m never lonely. Not only that—my dog has a positive impact on almost every area of my life. So why should I stop there? We all know dogs make our personal lives better; here’s how they can improve your professional life too.

They’ll always greet you at the door.

When you’re coming home, they’ll be waiting at the door with their tail wagging. They’ll jump on you with excitement and love before you even have time to drop your keys on the table. Dogs truly are an unconditional friend to hang out with because they will always greet you in such a positive way when you get home.

Dogs remind us to stay carefree.

Dogs remind us to stay carefree. They don’t care about your job, your boss or your commute. Dogs are happy to see you no matter what—even if it’s been a horrible day at work and you smell like garlic breath from eating pizza in bed alone last night.

Dogs don’t require much either. They just want a few walks and belly rubs here and there, with maybe some treats thrown in for good measure.

They’re a great excuse to get outside.

Dogs are great for helping you get outside, which is important for your health. They need to get outside, so you have an excuse to go with them. Walking is great exercise and gives you time to think about things as well as enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Dogs also provide a natural way of getting vitamin D – which most people don’t get enough of these days.

They can be your workout buddy.

While you may be the one who gets up in the morning and rolls out of bed, he’ll be the one to get you out there when you really don’t feel like it. He’ll nudge his nose against your hand or paw, or even jump on top of you with all four feet if that’s what it takes. The best part is that this isn’t just a trick for getting treats—it can also serve as an excellent motivator for going outside or hitting the gym. Plus, dogs are known to relax their owners’ stress levels by reducing blood pressure and heart rate.

If he’s already got a job (or maybe just some free time), then this may seem like overkill at first—but trust me: after only a few weeks of training together every day, walking will become second nature for both of you!

Dogs are better than men because they don’t eat all your food, don’t complain about the heat or cold and don’t say much.

A dog’s only expectation is that you take him out to pee. When you get back home, he’s happy to go outside again. He doesn’t mind if you have to work late, because he has no expectations of what your life should look like. Dogs are easy!

Dogs also don’t cost much, at least not in terms of money. According to a survey by CreditDonkey, an online financial education website, dogs cost $1-$3 dollars per day (depending on their size). Cats are more expensive; they cost $10-$15 per day for owners who feed them wet food and $7-$10 for owners who feed them dry kibble. But cats also require more vet care than do dogs–$20-$50 per visit–and there’s always the chance that your cat might need dental work costing hundreds or thousands of dollars.

They love unconditionally.

They love unconditionally.

Dogs are so loyal, and it’s no wonder why! They can be trusted to stay by your side through thick and thin, be it a pair of socks lost in the laundry or a long, hard day at work. They’re always happy to see you when you get home from work—just like they were ecstatic when you left in the morning. When was the last time anyone else was that excited about seeing you?

Anything is an adventure with them by your side.

One of the best things about dogs is that they’re always up for an adventure. They don’t care if it’s raining, or if it’s cold outside, or if the temperature is just right: a walk around the block is still a walk around the block. They’ll go on hikes in mud and snow, runs on icy sidewalks, bike rides through puddles, and playtime in park sprinklers with all of their might. You can take them anywhere you want to go—they’ll always be happy to go along.

It’s really hard to imagine life without a dog, but it might make work better if you had one in there with you too!

Dog owners are a happy bunch. A study found that dog owners get more exercise than cat owners, and the activity was linked to their improved overall mood. The petting and playing with your dog also lowers stress levels. And if you’re worried about finding time for an indoor dog, don’t be! Recent studies have shown that having a pet reduces the risk of heart disease and strokes in humans by lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

In short: live with a dog, get healthier, be happier!


One final thought for any dog lovers out there who don’t have their own pup: life is better with a dog! If you don’t already have one, then it may be time to think about adopting one from your local shelter. I know that I can’t go back to living without my pooch and would recommend them highly to anyone looking for companionship or just something to do on a rainy day.
