If you’ve ever spent time with a Goldendoodle puppy, you know that Goldendoodles are friendly, cuddly, and fun-loving dogs. You probably thought something along the lines of, “I’m taking this puppy home with me!”, or “I need one of these in my life!”, but did you know that owning a Goldendoodle can actually improve your quality life?
Simply put, adorable, doting dogs make people happy, and owning a dog can improve your physical and emotional well-being.
Owning a Goldendoodle can improve your mood.
Goldendoodles are very intelligent animals. This means that they’re easy to train and they can learn commands quickly, but Goldendoodles also have a high level of emotional intelligence. They can recognize when you’re feeling sad or upset, and respond by showing you love and attention.
Goldendoodles are good at being present. They focus their attention on you, especially when you need it.
Studies show that pet ownership can reduce loneliness and feelings of social isolation.
Studies have also shown how human-animal interactions can decrease cortisol levels. Cortisol is a hormone associated with stress. Engaging with animals also decreases blood pressure, and reduce feelings of depression and anxiety.
There’s no drama or hurt feelings between you and your pet. Goldendoodles are happy, expressive dogs; they are thrilled to see you every single time, and make you feel loved!
Owning a Goldendoodle can increase your physical activity levels
Maybe you’re in the small percentage of people who actually love laboring on a treadmill. Most people who are physically active do it because they know that it’s necessary for their health. About a fourth of American adults aren’t active at all, according to the CDC.
Given the choice between breathing in sweat-filled air while struggling on the gym treadmill, or going for a pleasant stroll around the park with a cute Goldendoodle puppy, you’re probably going to make the choice that includes a puppy.
Walking a dog is more fun than walking alone, but you’re also more likely to be active yourself when you’re accountable for your dog’s physical activity, too.
Statistically speaking, people who walk their dogs on a regular basis are more likely to stay active. Dog owners have 20 percent higher activity levels and are active for 30 minutes more per day compared to people who don’t own dogs.
Staying active is important for a number of reasons. It helps you manage a healthy weight, prevent type 2 diabetes, prevent heart disease, improves strength and balance, and improves your mood
Goldendoodles help people live healthier, happier lives.
Many of our Goldendoodles grow up to be therapy dogs. Therapy dogs provide comfort to people in a variety of settings: hospitals, schools, physical therapy clinics, assisted living centers, and disasters sites.
Goldendoodles make great therapy dogs because they are smart, loving, and have a high level of emotional intelligence.
