The perks of having a dog!

Of course, these four-legged balls of fur may bring some hardships and difficulties, but the advantages of owning a pooch outweigh the crap out of them :D So, let's get cracking!

1. Keeps you active!

The perks of having a dog!

Once a dog enters your life, your whole lifestyle changes for the better. They require their daily walks, excercise and playtime. Of course, some breeds are the epitome of lazy, but most will get your butt off of that couch! And as much as you might enjoy sitting around, you will feel so much better after getting some fresh air, moving and spending some quality time with your pup.

2. Best cuddle buds!

A warm, furry friend in your bed during cold winter nights? Yes please! Sure, they may take up most of the space or push you out of your bed completely, but they only deserve what's best.

3. Dogs reduce stress

Petting a dog or playing with them increases the levels of oxytocin (a stress reducing hormone) and decreases the amount of cortisol (a stress hormone) produced. The happiness formula: dog + touch = happy!

5. Make you feel better

It kind of goes with #4 but they do so much retarded crap, it just had to be a separate one! You have a bad day at work/school/whatever and then you come home and that dog can be such a mood booster. Whether it be a funny face they pull, chase their tail, get scared of their own fart or sit in their bowl of water, that bit of laughter may be just what you needed to not be a grumpy b*tch anymore.

6. Help you make new friends

Chances are, you may no longer have to approach people, your dog will do the job. If you're a dog person (which you most definitely are, or else you have one unlucky dog) you will want to meet people who like animals. When you take your dog out, you will no longer have to guess if you have anything in commone. They approach your dog - they like dogs, they like dogs - you like them. It's a win-win situation!

7. A friend for life

Although they do this:

And this:

...or this

They will ALWAYS love you, greet you with a wagging tail and be your best friend (only if you feed them though ;) ).

  • I've never liked dogs, because I was afraid of them as a kid (several bad experiences). But as I grow older, I'm starting to like them, and I may actually consider getting one when I live alone and have enough money for both.

    Nice take :)

  • Yeah, I still miss my brothers dog he had to put down last winter. She was great and I miss her every time I go to his house. I wish I could have one but spend too much time away.

    • That's not true

    • Even if the do is not able to protect you, they will bark. Thieves like to work in silence. They don't want to be disturbed

  • The worst thing about owning a dog? Their lifespan is far too bloody short !! The last dog picture is amazing... I have NEVER seen a dog with eyes MY colour , I've got green / blue eyes.

    • Depends on where you're digging XD

      Animals don't smell if they're washed regularly and the only smelly thing about cats is their food and shit box.
