Being around a dog is magical.
Not only is being a companion to a dog good for the dog – it can do wonders for the human as well!
A dog needs daily exercise, and that helps us to get up, get out of the house, and experience simplicity.
Dogs help you to appreciate the world around you. They smell the ground so intensely. They look at the trees as though they are seeing them for the first time. It helps us to remember the wonders that we take for granted.
So if you're stressed or anxious, it goes away for that moment when it's just you and the dog. Dogs perform magic. In an instant, they can help you feel calm. They just come in and make it happen without a word.
