Sometimes an older person becomes lonely and depressed. Studies show that having a pet to share their time with can alleviate anxiety and sometimes even loneliness. When selecting a dog for an elderly person, you should consider the size and the temperament.

Typically, it’s a better idea to select a small dog. You should also choose a dog the enjoys being petted and cared for. Dogs that require lots of exercise or are rambunctious are not good choices. A couple of dogs that do well with an elderly person are Pugs because they enjoy lots of love and adoration. They will also return this love in large quantities. Pubs like to play but they also enjoy sitting on their owners lap. The Schnauzer is also another good choice. They make wonderful pets for seniors. They’re always eager to please and keep their family safe. They require regular grooming and exercise. They thrive on human interaction, love and companionship.
