In the last 20 years or so, dogs have gone from a doghouse in the backyard to sleeping on our beds. Pets change people–this is something we all understand on an emotional level. The Pet Effect program maintains that the healing effects of a dog could change your health in other ways.
Studies show that pets can help lower blood pressure, lower risk of heart disease, prevent allergies in children, reduce stress levels, decrease anxiety and depression, strengthen immune systems, increase social interaction, and more. This video from The Pet Effect demonstrates the sometimes hilarious side effects of owning a dog.
