Laguna Niguel, CA - With everything going on in the world today, from the rise and spread of the coronavirus to financial uncertainty, no one is immune to feeling anxious. Anxiety can rob people of productivity, focus, sense of well-being and joy.
But having a dog can greatly help those who suffer from anxiety to cope and to feel better. Just being in the presence of a dog and stroking his fur has a definite calming effect on an anxious person.
According to research by the Human Animal Bond Research Institute (HABRI), interactions between people and their dogs have a wide variety of beneficial effects, including the release of hormones which are positively correlated with well-being such as oxytocin, b-endorphin, prolactin, and dopamine.
The particular breed of dog doesn’t matter. Purebred to mutt, all dogs can bring comfort and companionship to people who need it. There are particular breeds though that are better suited to an individual’s particular circumstances.
