You probably want a Goldendoodle because they are cute and cuddly — not because they can lower your triglyceride levels. Most pet owners don’t decide to get a pet solely for the health benefits; however, research does show that there are several health benefits of owning a pet. Here’s how owning a Goldendoodle can contribute to a healthy lifestyle.
How can a Goldendoodle make you healthy?
You don’t need a clinical study to tell you that having a pet around makes you feel good. There is plenty of research to support the claim that owning a pet provides health benefits, though.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states that people with pets receive a boost in both mental and physical health:
- Lower blood pressure levels. High blood pressure is associated with an increased risk for heart attack and stroke.
- Regulate cholesterol levels. High LDL or low HDL cholesterol levels can lead to heart disease.
- Lower triglyceride levels. High triglyceride levels increase your risk for heart disease.
- Reduce stress
- Lessen feelings of loneliness and depression.
- Improve your mood.
- Increase the opportunities for physical exercise and outdoor activity.
- Create more opportunities for socialization.
A study published in the journal Pediatric Research suggests that owning a dog can help promote healthy social-emotional development in young children. According to the study, toddlers from families with dogs were 30% less likely to have behavioral problems and problems with peers than children from families without dogs.
Owning a Goldendoodle can help keep you healthy by making you happier and promoting an active lifestyle.
