If you’re reading this blog, you probably already have a dog in your life, but this list, from distractify.com, is a great reminder of just how incredible dogs are and how many ways they help us in life. Here are just a couple of the reasons listed.
2. They can detect cancer.
Due to their incredible sense of smell, dogs have shown anywhere from 70 to 99% accuracy (depending on the study) when tasked with detecting lung cancer in a nearby patient.
3. They reduce work stress.
The International Journal of Workplace Health Management has discovered that workers who bring their dog to their office have less stress and are happier with their job, simply because the dog is hanging around.
We’ve discussed nearly all of these items at different points on the Dogs blog, but it’s remarkable to see them all listed in one place. It’s no mystery why we love and respect dogs so much.
