NY Times: Doxies Bring Health and Joy to Owners

According to this week’s New York Times blog post, owning a dog helps keep owners healthy! A recent study shows that owning a dog is linked to reduced heart risk. The American Heart Association study published observational evidence that owning a dog helps reduce stress, therefore reducing heart risk!

Furthermore, the article states, “Pet owners also tended to report greater amounts of physical activity, and modestly lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Some research showed that people who had pets of any kind were also more likely to survive heart attacks.”
