Pets are Good for us – time to buy a pet carrier!

people-and-petsErica Freeman, a professor at the University of Maryland School of nursing says that studies have shown that animals are good for our health.  This is true whether we own our own pet or just spending some time with one. According to Dr. Freeman, pet owners have better health in general, fewer doctor visits, higher self esteem and tend to be more independent that non pet owners.  She says that dogs can also motive people to exercise. People who won’t take a walk by themselves would be more motivated if they knew that they had to get up to walk their dog. People who walk with a dog walk longer and faster then people who walk alone. You don’t have a pet yet? I would think about adopting one! They offer more than just good health. They offer unconditional love that is very difficult to find these days. So head on out to get a pet carrier for your new pet!
