Walking Your Dog Is Good For Your Heart

There are many good reasons why owning a pet can improve health and well-being but dog owners may be top of the league when it comes to heart health.


If you own a dog you are likely to be benefiting from lower blood pressure, higher levels of physical activity, lower stress levels and ultimately a longer life.

A brisk walk of 15 minutes every morning will put you in a positive mind-set for the day ahead and help take the pressure off your heart.

Connecting with people when out walking, just that wee chat or smile is also great for mental well being.

And that late evening walk, taking you away from social media,can calm you down for a decent night’s sleep.
