8 Reasons Why Dogs Make The Best Pets by logadims: 3:48am On Sep 23, 2017
Dogs are the most loyal creatures on 4 legs.
Here’s 8 reasons why owning one's a smart
choice. grin grin grin grin smiley smiley wink cheesy cheesy

The science backs it up too – dogs really are the best pets.
Here’s why.



1. They evolved to love us

There’s evidence to suggest that we didn’t domesticate wolves –they came to us first. The friendliest ones hung around our ancestors’ campsites and so began the evolution of the modern dog.



2. They’re super smart

It’s no coincidence that dogs are so easy to teach. Dogs’ super social nature has allowed them to develop bigger brains , and those smarts are what make them so trainable.



3. They make you healthier

Dog owners are 34% more likely to get enough exercise than non-pet owners are. Walks aren’t just good for your pet, they’re
great for you too – dog owners have also been found to have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.


4. They make you happier

Interacting with a pet dog actively lowers your stress levels, leading to more relaxation, better moods, and less anxiety. One study even found that dogs are more effective at lowering people’s stress levels than their significant others.


5. They can even make your richer

A UK study found that pet owners earn upwards of $6,000 more per year than non pet owners. Even here in Nigeria, selling of dogs is now the main thing. Everyone wants to be a breeder. That seems like a pretty worthwhile investment.


6. They really do understand you
It’s recently been discovered that dogs can tell the difference between happy and angry human facial expressions . What does that mean? Well, when your pet looks like she knows she’s done something wrong, it’s probably because she does.


7. For security
Sometime ago, we. Saw how a Boerboel almost killed a theif that attacked his owner. If it were to be other pets' they don't and won't even bother.


8. They can serve as good companions for our kids
Look below and see how those kids are happy playing with the pet(dog).

True OP.

Dogs are very intelligent. I didn't even have to train my dog to stop urinating or defecating at the entrance porch but after she saw the digust on my face each time i cleaned up her mess she stopped and would wait till you take her outside before she does that.

They also get jealous too. grin

Lies,cats make the best pets,I even prefer to have a rabbit around than a foolish dog.
Cats are concerned about their owners,but they simply don't care to act madly over that.They are more gentle and also smart.

Dogs arent as intelligent as you think

So true. Those cute things.

Growing up, we've always had dogs at home, so much so that I see them as must haves in homes and should be respected as members of a household. This is why I can't bring myself to eating dog meat.
