These little bundles of joy make our life so much better; they make us laugh, they make us healthy, they bring out our unconditional love and then they ask for a share of our food! Just their presence in our lives develops such important qualities in us that improves every aspect of our personality. Here are some ways that dogs change your life.
- Your Learn Being Selfless
No dog owner is self-centric. Dogs need constant care, supervising and attention, especially when they are small. If you have a puppy then it is given that you are selfless because you know how to keep others and their well-being before your own.
- Parental Qualities Develop
Your dog is your first child. Your schedule revolves around their schedule, you provide them with food, you bathe them, you take care of them and they grow with your love and care. You look for ways to become the best parent your dog can have and that makes you a parent ready for a child.
- Patience Becomes Your Superpower
Dogs are not always angelic. They tear apart countless number of shoes, poop at unusual places, won’t eat nutritious food and other annoying habits as such are bound to make your blood rush. Over time, you will master anger management and lose your patience rather rarely.
- Sharing Is Inevitable
You cannot say no to that puppy face while you eat your pizza. They want everything that goes into your mouth and sooner or later you will give in to their super power, puppy face! Besides food, you’ll have to share bed with them at times and the whole house too. As they say, sharing is caring.
- Disgusted? Not So Easily
Before dogs, you can be a cleanliness freak, after dog you’ll be a cleanliness freak who picks and cleans their poop, cleans the house and still comes back to a mess. Then one fine day, you’ll be above grossing out. And not to forget all the dog hair that you’ll be carrying everywhere.
- Active Lifestyle
Your lifestyle will be so much more active once a dog enters your life. First time dog owners may feel lethargic to take them on walks and clean up every day. But soon it becomes a habit that you enjoy. Playing with them and training are some other physical activities that contributes to your health.
- You Make New Friends
You have problem making new friends? Well, not anymore. Dog owners generally tend to get into conversations with complete strangers initiated by the topic of their dogs. You’ll always return with good conversations whenever you go for walks to parks, dog events etc.
- Memories Are Created Everyday
Your dog will crack you up anytime by making faces, running around for no reason, chasing its own tail or licking your face. On some days you’ll have food scattered on the floor, and on some other days you’ll see your dog being protective of you. Get ready for a roller coaster ride full of memories.
- You Become Happier
Imagine someone waiting for you and showering love on you as you come back home after a tiring day and that will be your dog, your personal cheerleader. They will always put a smile on your face. And we all know how important happiness is to our mental and overall health.
- Most Importantly, You Become A Better Person
Dogs bring out the best in us. They become much more than just pets, they become your lifeline. And you push yourself every day to give them every little thing. You become an overall better person when you can understand someone without words and care for them without thinking about returns.
It is said that dogs are a man’s best friend. And we cannot agree more.
