When you have a pet, you have a responsibility. Essentially, you will be looking after a small helpless creature who won’t be capable of fending for themselves, and thus you need to make sure you do everything you can for them to ensure they are happy and healthy.
But, of course, this isn’t a one-sided relationship, and the reason that we usually get pets in the first place is because they can fill a gap in our lives too. Dogs in particular can provide the kind of comfort and the kind of companionship that will make you feel loved and secure, just as though you were living with any other friend.
And better yet, dogs can also be great for your health – and if you let them help your health then that will be good for them as well. Read on to see how getting a dog can improve your well-being and create a truly symbiotic relationship.
The Goldendoodle is a great dog for walking. They are large enough that they don’t tire out easily, and as mentioned, they are also very social and get on well with other dogs when you’re out and about. All of this ensures that Goldendoodles are among the best choices for those who want an excuse to get out and about, meet more people, get some sun, and stretch their legs!
There are other ways that dogs like these aid your health too. They can help people to deal with loneliness and depression for instance: many studies show that having a dog can help to reduce levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) and to lower the heart rate. Again, because these dogs are so good-
natured, they make particularly effective companions.
And in fact, both Labradoodles and Goldendoodles are very often used as guide dogs or for people with allergies! This demonstrates how trainable they are, and it’s also why these dogs can be used to help those with mobility issues.
Of course, the hypoallergenic nature is also a big bonus, and something we’ll discuss more in a moment.
