I think most dog owners would agree with this article: Pets Can Be Therapists. The article discusses how, as many have claimed, pets are great for a person’s mental and physical health: “We usually talk about ways that we can take care of our pets, but our pets can take care of us. Pets improve the lives of their humans in so many ways. Pets are very good for our emotional and physical health. Taking care of a companion animal gives us a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Because our pets rely on us to keep them safe, happy and healthy, someone who is beginning to show signs of depression or loneliness is often brought back to life by the responsibility of pet guardianship.”
