Dogs can lower your risk of asthma

Great news for dog lovers who have kids or are planning to start a family. A team of scientists studied more than 1 million Swedish children to determine the relationship between dog ownership and asthma. The study showed that children who grew up with dogs had asthma about 15 percent less than children without dogs.1

It just goes to show that the joys and benefits that dogs give us are far too many to count. So give your pooch a big hug for all the amazing things she does.
