Dogs, cats, bunnies, hamsters, parrots, fishes, turtles… Those who have animals at home certainly know some of the benefits that living with another form of life involves and, in recent years, even several scientific research has confirmed the positive impact of having pets. Having a pet indeed would imply multiple benefits for human health, both physically and mentally. Pet therapy is a real benefit for some people and they don’t even know it.

For example, after a tiring and demanding day, it is extremely relaxing to sit down on the home sofa with your dog, your cat or other pet next to you and spend half an hour cuddling it. Giving and receiving attention produces endorphins in our brains, as in that of our pet; these are chemical substances generated by a cranial gland called hypophysis, which stimulate in us a feeling of well-being, capable of spreading to the whole organism. A feeling that we would be ready to bet on รหัสโปรโมชั่น Sbobet, you already tried in the past.

Both the owner and the dog can then perform a daily physical exercise, continuous and constant over time, but not too tiring and suitable for people of all ages. The activities that you can practice with your dog are the most diverse: from simple walks for everyone, the sportiest ones can jog, ride a bike or even swim together with their beloved pet.

Having an animal next to us means also feeling loved and important, even essential for someone, and therefore have an extra motivation to face the day positively: it increases self-esteem and, dealing with dogs, also encourages socialization, since it pushes to leave the house, meet other animals’s owners and make new friends.

Think for example that, for children, having an animal at home reduces the onset of allergies: living in contact with a dog or a cat strengthens the immune system because it exposes to viruses and bacteria carried by the animal, but not transmissible to humans, that make the baby’s body stronger and more responsive. According to the University of San Francisco it also involves a lower probability for children to contract seasonal viruses that cause diseases of the respiratory system, such as coughs and colds, but also asthma.

Having an animal at home for a child also means also growing more independent and balanced: in addition to the physical benefits that life with a pet produces on our children, there are also equally important positive effects on the development of their personality. Children learn from a young age the sense of responsibility in taking care of a dog or a cat, but also respect towards them; in this sense it is fundamental that parents direct them correctly, making the child understand immediately that an animal in the house is not a toy, but an intelligent and sentient being with its needs and its spaces to be respected. In this way the children also develop greater self-control, which helps them relating to the outside world and make them more capable of interacting with others.

So, dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters, parrots, fishes, turtles… the choice is yours!
