3 Reasons Why International Dog Day is the Best Day of the Year


It's official, the best day of the year is upon us once again- International Dog Day! Here are just a few reasons why this special day dedicated to our furry friends is always one of the best.


Dedicated to our furry friends

It's hard to believe that it has already been a year since we celebrated International Dog Day! It seems like only yesterday that our furry friends were by our side, keeping us company during the long days of summer. As we move into fall and winter, we can't help but think about all the wonderful moments we've shared with our dogs over the years. While every day is technically a day to celebrate our canine companions, International Dog Day is extra special.


Reason #1: Dogs provide us with unending love and companionship

Dogs provide us with unending love and companionship. They are always there for us, no matter what. They make great listeners and are always happy to see us, no matter how bad our day has been. Dogs give us loyal companionship and unconditional love, which is something that we can all appreciate.


Reason #2: Dogs help improve our mental and physical health

There are many reasons to celebrate International Dog Day, but one of the most important is that dogs can have a profound impact on our mental and physical health. Numerous studies have shown that owning a dog can relieve stress, lower blood pressure, and provide companionship and emotional support. For instance, one study found that dog owners had significantly lower levels of the stress hormone cortisol after completing a stressful task than those who didn’t own dogs.


Reason #3: Seeing a dog boosts our mood instantly

One of the best things about dogs is that they have the ability to make us feel instantly happy. When we see a dog, our moods are automatically lifted and we can't help but smile. Dogs have a way of bringing joy into our lives, even on the gloomiest of days.
