Trained Dogs are Happier Dogs.

Not showing the dog boundaries and the correct behavior and expectations is cruel and unfair to the dog.

In fact, most submissive and aggressive dogs I have met are largely that way because of a lack of structure in the dogs life.

Many households find that both dogs are happier with a canine companion, but the transition from a single to a multi-dog household takes a little effort. Here are a few tips to foster a good relationship between the old and the new dogs.

They found that pet owners were happier, healthier and better adjusted than were nonowners.

All in all, the researchers found that even healthy people benefit from pets.

pet owners are just as close to key people in their lives as to their animals, which serve as important sources of social and emotional support.


Yes, we know our pets can make us happier, but research shows that interacting with dogs can help reduce stress.

Even something as simple as playing fetch or petting your pup can increase levels of the feel-good hormone oxytocin in your brain, and lower production of cortisol, a stress-inducing hormone.


Pets lower stress and depression.

Stroking your cat or dog can lower your blood pressure and make you feel calmer.
